Jane's Addiction Gig List

Post by Mike » Sun Nov 23, 2008 1:01 am

Attention: For the latest additions / revisions to this list see my last post in this thread.

This is a show listing for Jane's Addiction for the years 1985 - 1991.
All known shows by the band during this period are listed.
We are attempting to compile a complete and accurate as possible show listing.
That being said I'm sure there are shows on this list that could still be wrong.
I'm also sure that we are missing some shows.
For a show to be confirmed we need to have one of the following:
Ticket Stub - These are proof positive off a show 99% of the time.
Tour Itinerary - These are hard to come by but excellent proof of shows and their dates.
Poster, Flyer, or Handbill - Not only are these excellent proof of a show they are a joy to see.
Newsprint - This can be a ad from a newspaper or a review of the show.
I have indicated next to each date what we have as "proof" of the show.
If you see a show with none of these items listed next to it it's not a confirmed show.
If you wish to view the confirmation item checkout the "Tour Dates" section of the site.

RUN-D.M.C. BARRED FROM STREET SCENE
Author: ELIZABETH HARTIGAN, Daily News Staff Writer










Article Text:

The rap group Run-D.M.C., whose concerts made headlines this summer when fans were stabbed, beaten and shot at a concert, will not be allowed to play at the Street Scene festival this weekend, city officials said Tuesday.

"We have no intention of subjecting the people attending this event to any possible threat of gang violence," said Deputy Mayor Tom Houston in a statement.

The statement prompted a protest from Run-D.M.C, who said they thought they would perform. "Somebody has a funny idea of hospitality," the group's statement said.

Run-D.M.C. added that the group is not to blame for gang violence that resulted in 40 injuries at a Long Beach concert last month. "To make a statement that blames Run-D.M.C. for something that victimized them is at best rude and unprofessional . . . A great many of the reports of violence at Run- D.M.C. concerts are inaccurate reports," said New York publicist Howard Bloom.

"I'm sorry that they feel they were misled but, according to my information, they were never booked," said Street Scene publicist Esther Renteria.

MAKIN' THE SCENE AND TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS
Author: CRAIG ROSEN, Daily News Staff Writer










Article Text:

The ninth annual Los Angeles Street Scene will have an expanded international focus and more than 300 performances from rock, country, rhythm and blues, jazz, classical and dance acts. But it won't have Run-D.M.C.

Speculation that the popular rap group would make its first Southern California appearance since its summer Long Beach Arena concert, when 42 people were hospitalized after a rash of gang-related violence, nearly upstaged this weekend's festival.

City officials said Tuesday the group would not play at the family- oriented event that last year drew more than 1.3 million people to downtown Los Angeles.

The band made a surprise appearance without problems at last year's Street Scene, said Sylvia Cunliffe, Street Scene producer. "It was sort of a mellow, happy crowd. I didn't feel any threats," she said. "I have nothing against them. I enjoy their music."

'Woodstock-Mardi Gras'

Even without Run-D.M.C., the Street Scene, which will also feature more than 150 booths displaying various arts and crafts, promises to be a big event for music fans. "It's going to be a Woodstock-Mardi Gras," said Milt Petty, director of talent acquisition for the festival.

Highlights include modern-day folk singer Phranc, British reggae artists UB40 and the godfathers of punk, the Ramones, on Saturday; and the countrified Lonesome Strangers, folk-rocker Peter Case, the roots-rockin' Blasters, teen rappers Timex Social Club, former-Minutemen Firehose and, the next big thing
from England, Gene Loves Jezebel, on Sunday.

The opening day of last year's Street Scene was marred by unruly crowds as police in riot gear on horseback dispersed groups where heavy-metal or punk bands were playing. Audience members claimed the police action was unprovoked; police complained they were pelted with rocks and bottles.

Petty said the programming of this year's festival has changed. "We didn't book any hard punk acts, and we haven't programmed five metal acts in a row.

"We feel like we've done better planning," he said. "We're working closer with the police, because last year we had such an overwhelming number of people. We expect a similar crowd, but we're more prepared for it."

Staging changes

In addition, producer Cunliffe said there have been some changes in staging. The Spring Bowl Stage in front of City Hall has been moved out of the street and onto the steps so the street will be a free-flowing area. In addition, the rock 'n' roll stage, which was located on San Pedro Street near a multilevel parking structure, has been removed because people were dropping bottles from the parking structure on the crowd below, Cunliffe said.

There will be more police officers on standby for this year's festival, but not necessarily more in presence. "We don't want to make it look like a police state," she said.

Capt. Rick Batson, head of the Los Angles Police Department's Street Scene command post, said he has no changes in strategy, despite the disturbances last year. "We consider that an isolated incident. We consider that something that happened last year, and we are not looking forward to it happening this year," he said. "We are not walking into this thing ready for war."

The Street Scene actually kicked off Wednesday at the Embassy Auditorium with the First Los Angeles International Music Festival, featuring acts from 15 countries including Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. All of the groups will perform during the Street Scene, with the five finalists set to appear on the steps of City Hall Sunday. Cunliffe said she hopes all the contestants will bring the message of international goodwill home to their respective countries.

'There's a message'

"When you consider the number of people who come out and the very few who get involved in any problems," she said, "I think there's a message there."

This year's festival, which is dedicated to the Los Angeles Public Library Save the Books Fund and the Child Survival Campaign, will be from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, in the Los Angeles Civic Center area between Aliso, First and Alameda streets and Broadway.

Opening ceremonies, featuring Oliver de Coque and his 35 Nigerian dancers and sky divers, will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the Spring Street steps of City Hall.

DAY ENDS IN YOUTH RAMPAGE

Author: TOM MALLORY, Daily News Staff Writer










Article Text:

Violence erupted when police tried to close the ninth annual Street Scene Saturday night, although most of the 520,000 people who converged on downtown Los Angeles enjoyed the festival without encountering major problems during the day, authorities said.

Police faced an onslaught of bottles tossed by unruly youths as they cordoned off First Street near Broadway at the scheduled 10 p.m. closing time, forcing Street Scene visitors to leave the area.

At least 20 people were arrested, police said. A Red Cross worker said at least 40 and as many as 100 people were treated for injuries.

After the initial violence was quelled, another group of about 500 youths began pelting police with rocks and overturning food stands outside a carnival on Temple Street near First Street.

Police said prior to the second riot at 11 p.m. they had urged organizers to close the carnival because of concern that violence might erupt.

Officers in riot gear charged into the crowd of rampaging young people, attempting to make arrests and drive back the youths who were shouting obscenities.

Other officers on horseback held their ground as bottles smashed around them.

Police maintained high visibility throughout the day Saturday to guard against the type of scattered violence that broke out at last year's Street Scene, where crowds of rock music fans had to be dispersed.

There was no word from festival organizers on how the violence would affect today's scheduled Street Scene events.

Even before the violence broke out Saturday night seven people had been arrested.

Two people were held on suspicion of battery against police officers, one for throwing rocks at the police, one on suspicion of theft of personal property and three on suspicion of public drunkenness. At least three wallets were reported stolen by pickpockets.

Rowdy fans started to climb up on stage during an afternoon performance by a punk rock group called Dramarama at the Times Plaza, but police pushed them back.

Later, at the request of concert promoters, mounted police dispersed a crowd slam dancing to the music of the punk rock band Agent Orange at 6:30 p.m.

Police Sgt. Barry Staggs called all these incidents "par for the course," and said the vast majority of people who came downtown Saturday enjoyed themselves peacefully.

Valerie Finlayson of Sherman Oaks wanted to show Los Angeles to her sister and her new roommate, and they found all of the city's diverse culture in one place.

"Here's L.A.," said Finlayson, 25, standing on Temple Street in the middle of the Street Scene.

The crowd estimated at about 520,000 included young and old, wearing everything from black leather jackets to sports clothes -- but none of the gray business suits usually seen downtown.

"It's a great way to see L.A. if you've only got a short amount of time," said Di Bell, of Christ Church, New Zealand. "It's mind blowing coming from New Zealand, believe you me."

The city-sponsored Street Scene, which continues today, features more than 300 performances on 19 stages across a 14-block area.

"I've been here (in Los Angeles) one whole day," said Finlayson's roommate, Laura McNulty, fresh from Toledo, Ohio. "It's very, very different."

"I'm used to weirdos in spiked hair," said Jennifer Finlayson, 23, of San Diego. "But people are staring at me because I am the only normal person."

"A man stripped in front of us. We saw a '50s (musical) revue. But the first thing we saw was the Coor's truck, and we headed right for it," said Valerie Finlayson, a cold beer in her hand.

Along with the entertainment on stage, the Street Scene featured a wide variety of ethnic foods and handicrafts.

"I'm busy, but I'm having a good time," said 25-year-old Armando Ornelas of Fullerton, stirring a large wok of rice in a makeshift kitchen behind a Thai food stand.

"It is just a variety of people you see here and also the amazing amount of cultures in the foods being sold on the street."

Pizza was being sold a few yards away; hot dogs were available around the corner.

Litter from the fast food stands and discarded religious literature were everywhere.

"I like to see all the people, everybody interacting, that's the best thing," said Gabriel Fagiani, 21, of Burbank. "This is culture. This is L.A."

Fagiani and his friend Peter Pearce, 21, of Toluca Lake met two friends
from Burbank at the Street Scene Saturday, Sandy Moody, 25, and Pat Hickman, 28. Moody and Hickman arrived at 11 a.m. and already had enjoyed the music of the English Reggae band UB40. But by midafternoon Moody was slowing down.

"What time are we leaving? What time does it close," Hickman said.

"No way," Moody said, interrupting. "I think it'd be too crazy at night."

SEE CORRECTION APPENDED

If you've ever wondered what Led Zeppelin would've sounded like without that mystic twerp singing lead, the answer might be the local quartet Jane's Addiction.

The as-yet-unrecorded outfit-named top L.A. band in Music Connection magazine's 1986 poll-opened its show at the Roxy on Monday in fine, tie-dyed velvet tradition with a 40-minute acoustic segment of psychedelic folke 'n' blooze variations that included Rolling Stones and Lou Reed tunes, five minutes of strobe-lit, man-discovers-echo-unit shenanigans and a way out on the tiles rendition of the band's own instant classic and signature song, "Jane Says."

After an aggressively unremarkable set by Shrill Strained Shtick-er, Thrill Train Tricks-the headliners returned in their more familiar electric incarnation for more than an hour's worth of howling, mad-dog, sheet-metal ramalama.

While guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Steve Perkins may light candles to the presence of a certain twisted monolith, the strength of Jane's Addiction lies in the band's willingness to explore the super-duty funk and minor-key, droning cornerstones of the mighty Zep, their obvious rock 'n' role model.

Having frontman Perry Farrell flailing his white Rasta hairdo around the stage as if he were the godson of Iggy Pop added character, as did his edgy, vibrato-laden vocals. But the choking sense of Hollywood street dread that hovered over the entire evening is the band's real step beyond. Now if all their material were as strong as their best 30 minutes. . . .

You can start getting the Forum marquee ready.

Love and Rockets and Jane's Addiction-the headliner and opening acts, respectively, Saturday night at UC Irvine's Bren Events Center-are both headed for the big time. The question is which will make it to the arena level first.

Love and Rockets has a commanding head start. The British trio's latest album, "Earth-Sun-Moon," is the reigning favorite on college and alternative-minded rock radio stations, while Jane's Addiction is still mostly a local favorite whose first LP for a major label won't be released until spring.

Still, don't take Jane's Addiction lightly-on any level. This is a frequently electrifying band, asserting a sort of dark Led Zeppelin force-the kind of seductive, almost unnerving musical spell that is at the heart of true heavy metal music, not the tedious, cartoonish bombast of the many bands associated with the genre these days.

Besides the strong tow of the music itself, Addiction has a compelling front man in Perry Farrell, who appears so committed to a renegade rock spirit that he gives off the illusion that almost anything can happen on stage. It's an anxious, unsettling approach that recalls such other classic rock radicals as Iggy Pop and Jim Morrison.

The latter reference was especially appropriate when Farrell performed at least one entire song with his genitalia in clear view through a wide opening in his bicycle-type spandex pants. Though he eventually slipped on some briefs, Farrell's manner was so nonchalant that many in the audience must have wondered if this brazen gesture was part of the act.

(A campus policeman said during intermission that the band's road manager had assured officers that Farrell's pants had merely ripped, so no action was taken against him.)

After intermission, Love and Rockets arrived on stage amid a barrage of smoke, strobe lights and other psychedelic-era relics that seemed to delight the mostly college-age crowd, but distracted from the underlying talent and artistic promise of the band.

The consistent strength of Love and Rockets-through both last year's "Express" album and in the new "Earth-Sun-Moon" LP-is the dazzling sense of rhythm achieved by guitarist Daniel Ash, bassist David J. and drummer Kevin Haskins. The weakness in pre-"Earth-Sun-Moon" material-which was featured in the concert-is vague, cosmic lyrics that often make the group seem shipwrecked in a harbor of inconsequence.

As the band raced through such rhythmically invigorating but thematically shallow tunes as "Kundalini Express" and "Yin and Yang the Flower Pot Man," it was inviting to picture how enticing Love and Rockets might sound with better songs. The irony is the band does have superior songs, lots of them in the new album-crisp, concise, flavorful numbers that deal convincingly with concrete matters of self-identity and personal ideals.

If the band concentrated on the older tunes because they figured fans might not be familiar with songs from the just-released album, it was a bad sign. A group on the verge of a creative breakthrough should be bursting to play its new songs, regardless of audience reaction. If the band stuck with the older material because it doesn't recognize the vast superiority of the new material, an even deeper problem may be involved. Whatever, Love and Rockets has the potential to be a major band-artistically and commercially. We should know about their fiber and future when they return to Southern California in March.

Will somebody tell the X/Blasters ax-slingers to decide what bands they want to be in?

Remember when Billy Zoom left X a year ago, to be replaced by Dave Alvin from the Blasters, whose original plan was to be a member of both bands. Then Tony Gilkyson-formerly with Lone Justice-also joined X, giving the group two guitarists.

Then Alvin went full-time with X, handing over his spot in the Blasters to Hollywood Fats, who was best known for his work in the James Harman Band. When Fats died of a heart attack, Alvin stepped back into the Blasters until the band could find a replacement.

Now the replacement has been found. And it's . . . Billy Zoom.

But wait-the story's not over.

Now Alvin has said goodby to X. He's planning to devote all his attention to his own band, the Allnighters.

So where does that leave us?

The Zoomed-up Blasters are headed for Europe for some concert dates before returning home to begin work on the group's first post-Dave Alvin album. Elektra Records has just released X's sixth album, "See How We Are," featuring Alvin and Gilkyson (see review on Page 68), and Alvin's debut album with the Allnighters, which has just been released by Demon Records in Britain, will be issued here by Epic shortly.

SCREAMS IN THE NIGHT: Sets by X and Caterwaul were scheduled to inaugurate the Scream's new location at the Park Plaza Hotel (607 S. Park View St.) last night. The new, plush digs are quite a contrast to the bombed-out atmosphere of the old Embassy Hotel locale, where the club established itself as the local late-night leader. Whether that standing will move with the club remains to be seen.

However, there was a sense of history at the official farewell from the Embassy, as Jane's Addiction played May 30 to a crowd that nearly burst the walls of the 2,000-capacity club, with at least 500 people waiting outside.

"I used to come here a lot and I thought I'd see it go out with a bang," said Cathy Falanga, 18, drummer with the Superheroines, as she waited at the end of the line outside.

A bang is putting it mildly. The success was far more than co-owners Bruce Purdue or Michael Stewart anticipated. "This is a little absurd," said Stewart as he stood watch over the door, nervous about the possibility of the fire marshal closing the club down for overcrowding.

His partner Bruce Purdue was off to the side taking pictures of the throng. "When I'm an old man, I can look at these and say, `This is how many people I drew.' "

Purdue wasn't the only shutterbug. Liza Dazling, 18, of Manhattan Beach was also taking pictures. Why?

"For memories," she said as she looked for her friends in the jammed patio. "I'll miss this place. The atmosphere here is special. I would have come no matter who was playing. It's the last night. That's what's important."

Apparently. At 2:30, with Jane's Addiction nearing the end of its set and the bar closed, the line outside still stretched around the block.

GEZA X REDUX: Back in the halcyon heyday of L.A.'s punk scene, Geza X was the modern Renaissance man, not only producing records ranging from the first Germs single to the Dead Kennedys' cult classic "Holiday in Cambodia" to Black Flag's "Six Pack," but also writing magazine articles and fronting his own group, Geza X & the Mommymen.

Then in the early '80s, Geza X dropped out of sight, moving to Pomona and immersing himself in computers and MIDI-generated music.

Now Geza X is back with a new band, a new style and a new outlook. His band, Dizzl Whatsit (which debuts July 1 at Al's Bar), is straight-ahead rock 'n' roll and proud of it. The arty noodlings of past Geza projects is gone, thanks in part to his new partners: drummer Brian Hudson, guitarist Mike Martin (from Tex & the Horseheads), and former Raszebrae members Katie Child (bass) and singer Debbie Patino (vocals).

"Leaving L.A. and rebuilding my life was such a sobering experience," Geza said from his East Hollywood apartment. "I'm seeing things from a different experience. I go out a lot more now because I notice not everybody is a junkie anymore and I'm really shocked by how many good bands there are. I don't want to do any of the goofy art stuff anymore. Everybody wants to rock and I do too."

And yes, he's thinking of getting back into producing records: "I heard yesterday that `Holiday in Cambodia' has sold nearly 130,000 copies. That's a lot of records. I guess that makes me official."

NIGHTLY NEWS: Flaming Colossus (850 S. Bonnie Brae Ave., (213) 202-4310, open Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.) might be just the thing for those dance-club fans whose idea of a night out is on the somewhat sophisticated side. Besides the dance room, the club has an ethnically oriented restaurant and an art gallery. The latter is complete with a 20x15-foot mural that is repainted every two weeks by different artists. Entertainment varies from African dancers and fire eaters to a variety of world beat artists, including (so far) the Bonedaddys and members of King Sunny Ade's band.

"This isn't like Power Tools or Scream," said Sue Choi, who runs the club with two French brothers. "It's a little older, more professional. It's one of the few places where you can see a gallery owner dancing next to a punk-club-goer."

THE DECLINE AND STUMBLE OF THE ROMANS: A crowd of fans and friends bade a fond farewell to the Romans last weekend at the Lhasa Club as the band followed its Down There labelmates Russ Tolman and Divine Weeks with a rollicking set of Celtic and/or country rock. Leader Michael Uhlenkott was in fine form as he stumbled about the stage, and the band sounded quite unlike an outfit on the verge of a split.

Oh, mama, is it really the end? The answer is "Yes, but . . .," according to the band's guitarist (and L.A. Weekly rock critic) Robert Lloyd, who said before the show that it's not unlikely that the Romans will play together again on some future occasion "by accident."

NEWS 'N' NOTES: Radwaste, the industrial-strength rhythm makers featuring four (count 'em) drummers, is recording its debut LP with former Public Image Ltd. guitarist Keith Levene producing. . . . Rock-scientist Thomas Dolby sat in with Doc Tahri (which features another ex-PiL member, Bret Helm) recently at the Lhasa Club for encores of his own "Hyperactive" and a hot-wired version of "We Are the World."
More from / for this show in the morning. :)

Perry Farrell, the lead singer of Jane's Addiction, is nothing if not audacious.

Early in the band's New Year's Eve performance at the old Embassy Hotel Auditorium, Farrell expressed his pride in being back home in Los Angeles for the Addiction's first major local appearance since the release last summer of the group's Warner Bros. debut album "Nothing's Shocking."

"This is the best place to be," he told the audience. "We've got the Lakers, the Dodgers . . . and Jane's Addiction."

But then, why not talk big if you can back it up? And for 80 minutes Saturday night, the young quartet did just that.

OK, so maybe the band doesn't yet belong on that roster of champions, but it made a strong case that it has a place in Los Angeles' legacy of brash and arresting rock acts.

That point was made strongly later in the show when the group put its own harsh, dreamy "Summertime Rolls" at the end of a medley of the Doors' "L.A. Woman," the Germs' "Lexicon Devil" and X's "Nausea"-all definitive songs by definitive L.A. bands.

And with that, Farrell and crew didn't just kick off a new year, but perhaps also a new era in L.A. rock, with Jane's Addiction at the forefront. The reasons that may be true were plentiful at the Embassy.

First and foremost is Farrell himself. On stage he's as singular and striking a figure as Stooges-era Iggy Pop and Johnny Rotten, though without the self-destructive bent of the former or the sneering condescension of the latter.

Though hobbled by a cast on one leg (for torn ligaments suffered during a concert a few weeks ago), Farrell leaped and hopped around the stage, his green (yes, green) dreadlocks flying, dramatising the very personal nature of his songs of youthful anguish and confusion. Most remarkably, there's no sense of posturing or calculation in his persona, a point that underscored the be-yourself core of his lyrics, echoing such past characters as David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and Tim Curry's "Rocky Horror" role.

"Bask in the moment," Farrell told the crowd with an innocent sincerity that added a particularly personable dimension to his performance. "You are warm and exciting. Enjoy this. This is the best."

Not to be overlooked after Farrell, however, is the band itself: The wall of sound built by guitarist David Navarro, bassist Eric A. and drummer Stephen Perkins is every bit as integral to Jane's Addiction's precocious status as Farrell's words and presence. This band doesn't just have songs drawn from Angeleno Angst, it sounds like it-an aspect emphasized by the faded glory of the Embassy Auditorium.

Navarro in particular is an amazing musician-a potential guitar hero, though (like Farrell) with none of the posturing and posing that often goes with the territory. At the Embassy he forged a sound closer to the classic, thunderous heavy metal of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath than the opaque sound of the album, but with no less originality and character. And it certainly wasn't conventional metal-no band led by Farrell could ever do conventional anything.

Unfortunately, it could be the very qualities of Jane's Addiction that could hinder its exposure. Not readily definable like the Aerosmith-influenced hard rock of Guns N' Roses, Jane's music seems an unlikely candidate for the mass success Guns has had, especially on radio. Nor does the group's approach have the broad, aggressive (though thoughtful) appeal of Metallica, a band that made its name without radio.

On the other hand, there's so much in Jane's Addiction that could strike a resonant chord among disaffected youth (i.e. just about every American teen) that it's not unreasonable to hope that this could become not just a great L.A. band, but recognized as a great band, period.

Another show that we didn't need further confirmation for but what a sweet review.

http://janesaddiction.org/tour/tour_det ... tourID=397
Paper: Houston Chronicle
Title: It's a blues-blastin' kind of weekend on local club scene
Date: September 24, 1987

LAST month Big Dave over at Cafe L.A. moved his bar from the middle of the room
to the side, opening some breathing space in the venue and exposing the stage to
the customers.Customers? Did somebody mention customers? Cafe L.A. does not do
boffo box office as a matter of habit, never did as Zippers or Misty's or even
as the U.S. Bar & Grill. Something about the place.

But the location is great, the room is good, and as kind of a grand
re-opening, you see, Cafe L.A. is hosting a blues weekend tonight through Sunday
that should sport the best music in clubland this first full weekend of autumn,
with two or three exceptions.

Tonight, it's Joey Long, longtime area blues and country guitarist who
usually plays such joints as the Gin Mill and the Cedar Lounge, with its daily
afternoon "pressure cookers," where a bunch of good ole boys and gals drink
beer, tell lies and roar into the evening all primed on that good honky-tonk
ambiance.

Friday at Cafe L.A., it's Chicago blues guitarist Fenton Robinson, who now
lives between Chicago and St. Louis in Springfield, Ill. A quiet sort, Robinson
is one of the least-known bluesmen of his generation, but he's universally
admired in hard-core blues circles as a bluesman who will venture into unusual
territory, stocking his otherwise hard leads with sweet jazz-type runs
(influenced by seminal Texas blues guitarist T-Bone Walker) and unexpected bass
lines. For credentials, his "I Hear Some Blues Downstairs" album was nominated
for a Grammy in 1979.

Robinson was born in Mississippi in 1935, moved to Memphis where he was to
play in the burgeoning Beale Street district, built his first "guitar" out of
broom wire and first recorded - "Tennessee Woman" - at the age of 20. He later
recorded another version of the song for Houston's Duke Records, which was
scoring in the '50s with Junior Parker and Bobby Blue Bland.

He moved to Little Rock, then to Chicago at age 26, where he built a solid
reputation in the West Side juke joints. He grew tired, though, of the low pay,
back-stabbing and other niceties of the music biz and on several occasions
seriously considered quitting.

Robinson has also survived several marriages, widespread music circle
criticism of his conversion to the Islamic religion in 1968 and a nine-month
stay in the penitentiary on an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from a
1969 car accident in which a pedestrian was killed.

Robinson will be backed in his Cafe L.A. performance by the Essential Blues
Band.

Saturday and Sunday, same club, it's the much anticipated return of Nick
Gravenites, former running buddy with all the Chicago white bluesmen such as
Paul Butterfield and Mike Bloomfield and, of course, a graduate of Electric
Flag. Gravenites, who now lives in Northern California, played Fitzgerald's
about a year ago, perhaps longer, and he absolutely slayed me with his big,
blustery, throaty guitar style that rocks those blues like they've got no bone.
Trust me on this one, Slim. Anyone professing to love rockin'-blues must not
miss this man, and you've got two nights to work it out.

The Essential Band will also serve as Nick the Greek's backup. Killer show,
Bud, pass the word.

Other Critic's Choices for the weekend are confined to John Mooney & the
Bluesiana Band, Friday and Saturday at Chelsea's 804; the Tom Russell Band,
Friday and Saturday at Anderson Fair; and, but of course, John Hiatt, Saturday
at Rockefeller's.

I've heralded Mooney before, and his status hasn't changed: He's the best
white blues slide guitarist going, except for perhaps Ry Cooder, and his
Bluesiana boys cook up those swamp rhythms real tasty like. I mean, Mooney and
Nick the Greek in town the same weekend is almost too much to bear.

Tom Russell, who now lives in Brooklyn, performed in Austin in the mid-'70s
as half of the Hardin & Russell duo, recording two albums, " Ring of Bone" and
"Wax Museum". He's now stepping up to the Rounder label, which is releasing his
new LP, "The Road to Bayamon", Oct. 1. Russell's songs have been recorded by
Nanci Griffith, and the two have collaborated on a song for Griffith's next LP.
Russell's honky tonk music has been described as somewhere between Hank Williams
and the hard-edged Bakersfield Sound. A fella could do worse.

John Hiatt is touring on a solid new LP, "Bring the Family", and although
his road show has been preceded by glowing reports from the front, it's a shame
that the aforementioned Ry Cooder, who appears on the album, will not be with
him. Oh, he did an LA gig with Hiatt before a crowd of industry execs who
wouldn't know a slide guitar from a slide rule, but ole shy Ry does not tour
frequently, which, like the NFL players strike, just hurts everybody. Hey Ry,
the weather down here is great, plane fares are cheap, the natives friendly.

Still, the focus is on Hiatt, once a brooding, tortured "artiste" and an
angry young man who has, well, grown up a bit. Hiatt may be considered America's
answer to Elvis Costello, a gifted songwriter with just enough of an attitude to
be misunderstood. Starting out on the folk circuit, the Indiana-born Hiatt
careened through a number of images and styles that commercial radio, natch,
never heard of before we, the slowly growing audience, finally figured it out:
He's a rocker.

Opening for Hiatt will be - I'm in a mood for superlatives today - Texas'
best hillbilly-rock band, the Wagoneers (one show, 9 p.m.), who I keep telling
you are on their way to a future in this business and who are getting a good
look-see by A&M Records, which happens to be Hiatt's label. I am told that A&M
has bought a number of tickets for this show and will send at least one A&R
person to scout the Wagon guys.

Is that a fine weekend or what?

POP NOTES: Noted Houston advertising man Bruce Henry Davis can't even go out
of business after having tried lo these many years. So, it's his 14th annual
Going Out of Business Party, tonight at Fitzgerald's. "It's time to pull the
plug," says BHD. Free draft beer while it lasts, with talent supplied by
somebody named Miss Molly & the Passions, whoever they are...

Contrary to rumor, Rockefeller's is not being sold at this time. Instead,
the club has booked some interesting acts, one of which, Jane's Addiction (9
p.m. Sunday), is said to be an outstanding metal/funk/punk band. They just
signed with Warner Bros. following an intense bidding war. For two bucks, it
might be the sleeper of the weekend...

Another curiosity Sunday that might well please are the Wildwood Pickers, an
"all-gal" traditional bluegrass quintet, playing the Long Branch Cafe, 2048
Gessner (932-9602)... Yet another cracked idea has one attending the Elastic
Find, who are by no means ordinary, at the Last Concert Cafe tonight. First,
you've got to find the place (1403 Nance in the warehouse district)...

Bourbon Street nightclub (2030 Bingle) is hosting a benefit Sunday for the
Houston Area Women's Center. The all-day affair begins at 1 p.m. Admission is $5
to groove to a who's who of local bands: Private Numbers, Chainsaw Party Dogs,
Dr. Rockit, Lisa, Marie & Kim, the Roommates, Tommie Lee Bradley, The Blanks,
Special Forces, Connie Mims, The Headhunters, Lips & the Trips, Herschel Berry,
Square 1, Sheri Beeson and Harry & Kathryn Prince. All cover charges and a
percentage of bar sales w ill go to the Women's Center...
The third paragraph from the bottom of this article confirms this show.
Hard to believe the lucky folks that attended got in for only two bucks. :shock:

This show was cancelled due to the "Where ya pay to play" text on the flyer.
Troubadour owner Doug Weston was apparently not to happy with the band advertising that fact.
To this day Jane's Addiction have never played this venue.

Psi-Com, Perry's band before Jane's Addiction played there at least once.
The exact date is unknown.

Dave and Stephen's pre Jane's Addiction band Dizastre played there as well.

Recently the reunited Jane's Addiction used a modified 05/20/1986 flyer to advertise for the 10/23/2008 show at La Cita.
My guess is that's why danceright was supplied with these flyers.
