Jane’s Addiction Live at the Mann Music Center Philadelphia

August 20th, 2012

On Wednesday, August 15, art-alt-rock legends Jane’s Addiction brought their Theater of the Escapists tour to the Mann Music Center in Philadelphia. Starting with the founding of Lollapalooza in 1991, Perry Farrell and company (but mostly Farrell) have striven to make their live shows an experience rather than a mere concert.

Jane’s Addiction – The Great Escape Artist

December 20th, 2011


Not Quite Shocking Enough

What made Jane’s Addiction essential 20-plus years ago was not the music alone; it was the tapestry interwoven among the instruments, the melodies, the sonic explorations and textures, and the words of Perry Farrell.

Nothing’s Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual transcend their medium; the song “Three Days” is as indispensible a piece of American art as any Wyeth painting. Read more…
