Jane's Addiction

The music was mondo intense --- almost more intense than its performers at first --- and proved why this band is one of the major progenitors of alternative rock, and still remains on top. Material from its most recent release, "Great Escape Artist," was dished out liberally among the hits. The band opened with the new track "Underground" before diving into "Mountain Song," which sent several in the audience into a panty-wetting frenzy. The stage set was a sexed-up Warhol carnival with live girls punctuated by cinematic ones.

Jane's Addiction headlined Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY on March 4th with Black Box Revelation, part of their Theatre of The Escapists Tour. The above review comes from their Rochester show which was a few days before Huntington which is pictured in this post.

The tour continues tonight at a sold-out Wellmont Theater and soldiers on through late May, thanks to a new leg of dates added recently. All tour dates, pictures from Long Island and the setlist too, below...

I don't know what is sadder: two old guys fake making out with girls on stage, or losers holding up their cellphones during a concert. Fail all around.

Totally fail all around. The Paramount is also the worst venue in all of NY.

Epic fail.

Saddest of all are those who overuse the word "fail".

Navarro's face looks like he got a skin graft from Janice Dickinson.

He probably got something from Janice Dickinson anyway.

Perry's wearing MC Hammer pants? Dave got his CE (Carmen Electra) tatt covered? Why can't he just remember the good times?

Oh wait.

The paramount fucking sucks

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 6:24 PM

I went, tons of fun. Bought the new cd, was on the fence but seeing the new songs played live, I wanted to blast them on the drive home. Also bought my gf a key necklace - $30 seemed a bit much, but she's worth it (plus I didn't drink, so saved some $$). I'll have to ask her if she went into a 'panty-wetting frenzy' at any point during the show, but she might have, cuz she was giving me road head on the expressway while I pumped the new cd.

6:26 likes to pretend.

Something's Shocking, and its the fact that to think at one point in time these guys were the epitome of cool.

5:18 and 5:20 should get together and have a failure, I mean a fling

@ 7:33 PM Might I put fourth the idea that they don't spell to good? Modern Linality dictates that all grammer Nazis must foegive.

Too bad that grizzly wasn't real. Then this would've been a show.

NAVARRO

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2012 12:38 AM

Dave Navarro is the absolute gayest hetro?sexual on earth. Give your stylists a fuckin break, buddy.

Posted by Klicka | March 7, 2012 3:09 AM

Why does The Paramount suck? The sound and lighting is always excellent, the sightlines are great and there are lots of bars around the venue and no waiting for drinks. What's the down side? Oh, Live Nation...but otherwise...

Jane's Addiction has always been over-hyped. They have always been more potential than delivery, more flash than actual substance. Fanboys gonna be fanboys, but the truth is that they never lived up to the promise.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2012 8:07 AM

this band plays too much

Fuck The Paramount. Sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2012 10:17 AM

The only reason they *were* notable at the time is they bucked the hair metal trend. Although they ironically share a lot in common - partying, dumb lyrics, and over-the-top cheesiness. Suckage.

jane's addiction should go to rehab and never come back.

Was this band ever good or was everyone on great drugs back in thr day???

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2012 11:13 AM

This is all sorts of sad maybe if you closed your eyes it sounded OK my brother went and said it was a weird crowd of mostly dudes from the crowd shots in front he was right on. Perry is a walking ad for Botox too his face is all wax looking. Weird who would have ever thought. And $50 for a hoodie WTF greedy bastards!
