Jane's Addiction tops Common Ground lineup
Anne Erickson, firstname.lastname@example.org 5:01 p.m. EDT March 18, 2015
Alternative rock innovators Jane's Addiction will headline this year's Common Ground Music Festival on July 8, heading up a lineup that also includes In This Moment, Here Come the Mummies, Alien Ant Farm, Vandalay, Eyes Set to Kill, Kaleido and Ana.
Fronted by charismatic vocalist Perry Farrell and legendary guitarist Dave Navarro, Jane's Addiction was an early force in the alternative rock movement that began in the late 1980s. Groundbreaking albums such as 1988's "Nothing's Shocking" and 1990's "Ritual de lo Habitual" introduced the band's theatrical mix of hard rock, punk and metal to the masses with hits such as "Jane Says," "Mountain Song," "Been Caught Stealing" and "Stop!"
Ferrell also founded Lollapalooza in 1991. The tour ran annually through 1997, was brought back in 2003 and cancelled the next year. But in 2005, Ferrell and company re-launched Lollapalooza as a destination festival in Chicago.
Jane's Addiction's latest studio album, "The Great Escape Artist," arrived in 2011.
In This Moment will also perform on July 8. Headed up by the golden-locked Maria Brink, the Los Angeles-based group crafts viciously beautiful songs, with vocals that are a mix of singing and screaming. The band snagged major hits in "Blood," "Sick Like Me" and more. Their latest album, "Black Widow," dropped last November.
More talent will come from Common Ground vets Here Come the Mummies, a favorite funk-R&B group that performs in full mummy gear; Alien Ant Farm, who are known for their amped-up cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal"; female-fronted rock band Eyes Set to Kill; and some great Michigan bands, including Vandalay, Kaleido and Ana.
