Have you ever felt like it was inappropriate for Jane’s Addiction to do that STUPID LA song medley? I used to until I realized CALIFORNIA RULES and you just got sing posi vibes about it!
We’re back! Three days back in California and on our way to our last gig in SF, our home…(c:
We are doing our last four gigs with Dante Vs Zombies who are a smokin’ Dante’s Inferno influenced zombie outfit from LA who rule.
We got into LA yesterday morning to do a cool as beans recording session for Kevin at Antiquiet. We did four songs at the Swing House, where they treated us to some killer hippie food and a pro attitude… PLUS PRO GEAR! Woohoo!
Then we hit the towne! By that I mean, Ben & Nick drank C-minuses (Coors Light) in the hills outside Charles Bukowski’s house in the company of dogs, and Allyson & I went shopping for tasteless loud animal print ho clothing!
Then it was GIG TIME. Time for giggin. We had a pleasant soundcheck at the Satellite and hung around the club until Dead Ships went on. We had some Bay Area Represent crew show up and stoke us out. Ursula Boots, John Greenham, Heather Jewett, Ben’s brother Adam Tuttle, Caitlin Mattison & Diane, Matt Koshak… It was super nice to see our hometown buds as well as a pile of others like Bill Badgely of FEDERATION X, Jeanine Haynes & Patrick McCarthy! Snoop, Luda & Dr Octagon were there too.
We had a fun gig with Dead Ships & Dante Vs Zombies and then the crew split up! Nick & Ben went with Ben’s brother to barf & die in a stranger’s hotel room, and Allyson & I followed Dante to an impromptu party in the hills! I danced to Taxman by the Beatles & got hiccups and we all caught up with old pals. When 3am rolled around Al n I were ready for some straight ZZzzzzs! We followed Caitlin & Diane to their sweet pad in Studio City and the three of us slept in Caitlin’s bed, and this morning we were greeted with a nice wake up visit by her ultra cute massive German Shepherd Trebuchet.
Obviously we had to hit In n Out Burger for breakfast and the band all met up again and we hit the road en route for the mean streets of San Francisco. We are about three hours away and pipyamped for our last gig!
Everyone is super amped to be going back to work Monday, and I’m pretty stoked about going to Solana Beach tomorrow to kick back vacay style in a pool by the ocean with a Marg Simpson in my hand!
Shed a tear, pour out some Blue Curaçao®, tis the final USA/Canada Spring 2012 tour blog entry my fwiends.
We’ll be Bach though!
