ROCK OF AGES///JANE’S ADDICTION PLAY LA CITA FOR 200 PEOPLE
Yeah, you read that correctly. Last week a newly reunited, totally OG lineup of legendary LA band JANE'S ADDITION played the hipster hotspot LA CITA as part of DANCERIGHT for a capacity crowd of 200 lucky fans. Joining the band for the first time since their breakup in 1991 was founding bassist Eric Avery whose role had been filled by Flea and Mike Watt in previous reunions. Playing a set that drew heavily on the band's earliest material including several songs from the first live album "xxx," including "Whores," "Trip Away," and "One Percent," the quartet gave the kids a glimpse of the fury that was once the most formidable and influential band of its era. A straight-ahead Mexican cantina during the week, La Cita's innate "Tijuana Modern" decor provided the perfect backdrop for the boys, with Christmas lights and religious iconography straight from the "Ritual de lo Habitual" aesthetic playbook. Of course Danceright mainstay SHEPARD FAIREY warmed up the crowd as "DJ Diabetic," and provided the highly coveted poster art for the gig. HAVE A LOOK:
