Jane's Addiction secret show this fall in L.A.?
I ran into Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell Monday at Les Deux (it was a scene worthy of "Entourage" -- porn
stars "actresses" aplenty were at the packed bar to support alt-porn queen Joanna Angel's newest DVD, "XOXO Joanna Angel"), and had the chance to talk a bit about the Jane's Addiction reformation earlier this year at the NME Awards USA.
To my surprise, Farrell said that Jane's is actually looking to play again locally, and soon.
Pop & Hiss has confirmed this week that the band is in talks to play a very small bar in Los Angeles sometime this fall. We won't ruin the surprise of where the show will likely take place, but let's just say that those who get to see the show, if it indeed happens, will be very lucky indeed.
Here is a hint: The concert will likely be held on a Thursday night. Still unknown at this point is if original Jane's Addiction bass player Eric Avery will perform with the band, as he did in April in a short set for the NME Awards gig, but I'm operating under the assumption that he might.
