Back before the Black Keys played MSG, before SXSW, and before They Might Be Giants hit Terminal 5, Dana caught Jane's Addiction at the Wellmont Theater in NJ (which was right after Perry Farrell and crew played a show in Long Island). Here are some pictures from the 3/6 show. More of them below...

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.

Jane's Addiction at Irving Plaza in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Jane's Addiction resurfaced in 2011 with The Great Escape Artist, their first new album of original material since 2003's Strays. They followed the release of the album with a club tour that included two nights at Irving Plaza. In February and March, they'll head out on another tour, dubbed the "Theatre Of The Escapists" tour, where they plan to hit various theaters in North America with support from Black Box Revelation.
According to a statement from Perry Farrell:
We chose to play as many of the great theatres that we could find because we wanted to immerse the audience in a unique experience unlike any they have ever seen at a rock show. Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too.That tour hits the NYC-area twice: on March 4 at The Paramount in Huntington, NY and on March 6 at The Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Tickets for the Long Island show go on venue presale Wednesday at 10am with general sale starting Saturday at the same time. Tickets for the NJ show go on sale Saturday at noon.
