Today, Perry Farrell was in town with his new band, The Satellite Party. To tell the truth, I was not impressed by the new groups music and did not have much interest in catching their show tonight. I then got the last minute announcement that were giving a free show in the afternoon in the Beans & Barley parking lot and decided, have to go!
I thought it would be a great experience to take both of the kids to (hopefully) see Perry up close and personal. The show exceeded our expectations! The little stage was about 18' high and we were right up front for the performance.
The Satellite Party kicked out a song off of their new album (so-so), then what I think was a Porno for Pyros song and yes....2 Jane's Addiction songs!!!! It was Perry in all of his glory! I thought that I would never get to see Jane's Addiction live. This satisfied me to say the least.
After their short set, Perry was nice enough to talk with fans, sign autographs and pose for photos. I was very happy that my whole family was able to go to the show and we were able to get a group photo with Perry!! Look out for Christmas cards this year!!
