Jane’s Addiction, 3/13/12

Jane’s Addiction
The Tabernacle
Atlanta, GA
March 13, 2012



As part of their “Theatre of the Escapists” tour, Jane’s Addiction made a stop Luckie Street, the road that The Tabernacle in Atlanta resides upon. Packing the club to its brim on the Tuesday night near Centennial Park, Perry & company spanned a career that began on Venice Beach  and has taken them on many adventures — some of which, fans would just assume forget (see Rock Star: Supernova). But somehow (so far) they have always returned to Jane’s.


Hitting large clubs across the country of the tour, on this night there was no barrier between the stage and the crowd, and though he did not stage dive, the setup did allow allowing front man Perry Farrell to resort to his ways of old, interacting with the crowd in ways that took the Generation X demographically dominated throng back to the days of their youth, when “Three days was the morning;” though the moshing perpetrated in ATL by said Xers was probably regretted for a week, making their chiropractor buddy whose kid had a soccer game on the night of the show quite happy to accept his pal’s 60 bucks. 


It was a night for the ages with a band for the ages and is destined for The Hall.
