Jane's Addiction are set to ring in the new year at Atlantic City's House of Blues tonight, and to warm up for that they came to NYC on Saturday (12/29) for a show at Terminal 5. They played a bit off of their late-period/reunion albums, but most of the set was split pretty evenly between the classic early albums with songs like "Mountain Song, "Jane Says," "Been Caught Stealing," and many others. During the set, Perry Farrell also brought out firefighters who aided in Hurricane Sandy recovery that he knew from his high school in Queens, where he grew up, and he gave a speech about being proud of the way New Yorkers handled the hurricane.
A video of Perry giving that speech after playing "Ted, Just Admit It...," plus some other videos, the setlist, and more pictures from the show below...
