1985.10.13 Safari Sam's, Huntington Beach, CA - 1st EVER JA

Post by Mike » Tue May 05, 2009 1:53 am

This is the first ever Jane's Addiction show.
It would have taken place shortly before the 10/24/85 show at the Roxy Theatre.

It comes from (in a round about way via) the Box Set booklet.
I say round about way because the Box Set booklet includes a reproduction of this early press release for the band.

Page three of the following scans is the important page in regard to this show.

With the date, more documents might even be found. The Register should have some listing, since it's an OC local, and then there are the music rags, too. Safari Sams was a big indie venue (in this incarnation).

Great find!

I'm thinking the same as you tvrec.
We should definitely be able to find more info on this show.

I've been looking and ran across this list of shows on the Safari Sam's myspace.
