Completing a kind of nostalgic ’80s microcosm-in-the-flesh following recent area showings by Van Halen and Guns N’ Roses, singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and fill-in bassist Chris Chaney bring a semi-reunited Jane’s Addiction to town for a little Ritual de lo Habitual circle-jerk action. Not that that’s a bad thing! The group may not have surprised everyone with a solid late-period album, a la Van Halen (in fact, Jane’s Addiction’s 2011 outing The Great Escape Artist may have been their worst) or given the finger to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame like Axl Rose (Jane’s is eligible for inclusion next year. Farrell says he “would be more gracious”). But damn it if the alternative pioneers don’t deserve a hefty victory lap. Without Farrell, there’d be no Lollapalooza, and without their monstrous debut album Nothing’s Shocking, there would be no “Mountain Song.” Let us give thanks. – Justin Strout
