Friends and I, after the 3 1/2 hour Dweezil Zappa show at the Wellmont Theatre. Good times!!!
Here is an abbreviated set list. There were instrumentals that I didn’t catch the names of, so they are not written in this poorly spelled document.
call any vegetable
Sleeping in a jar
Keel it greasy
Trouble every day
Cleetus awrutis awrightus
Pound for a brown on the bus
The Meek shall inherit nuthin’
Jane’s Addiction show in NYC was nothing short of pure rock and roll magic and larger than life spectacle of cascading reverbed vocals, swirling wall-of-sound guitar, in your face drums, a bass bump you could dance to, supernatural lyrics with the mystical kitch of an Ouija board, nostalgic tales of love, reminiscence on the triumph of romance, beauty throughout youth to age, and Cirque du Soleil like trapeze artists dancing above the audience wearing costumes and masks lifted from a phantasmorgic mind meld of shamanistic psychedelia and boundary streching surrealism.
Biggest ovation of the evening is when Perry brought 2 NYC firefighters on stage and he announced that 100 percent of profits from tonight’s show would be donated to funds to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. ♥ you Jane’s!
Here is a photo that my friend Zach Lear took at the show.
Here are two photographs of some paintings that Zach Lear did of Jane’s Addiction. He has more paintings for sale. If you’d like to contact him, please check out his blog.
My friend Zach Lear drew a picture of me while I was playing guitar with our friend Andrew Nieporent, at the Fine Grind Coffee Bar – June 10 2012. Thanks Zach!
