Jane's Addiction crushes it in Aspen

Janes Addiction, Belly Up Aspen, 12/30/10. Click 4 pix.In Aspen the "going hard" lifestyle continues. You can't pretend to ski every day and party every night. 

When a hard driving rock band like Jane's Addiction shows up in Aspen,  AspenSpin reacts.  A-Spin took a disco nap and brought the A-Game to Belly Up to see the first of 2 sold-old  Jane's Addiction shows.

Opening act, Le Butcherettes shared their unique stylings on the Aspen stage as the house began to fill.  Lead singer Teri Gender Bender combined rage, rock and roll and sensuality to create an electric atmosphere.   The SRO crowd was filled with Jane's Addiction fans who were not in Aspen to ski or shop or fine dine or gallery hop--they came to Aspen for one reason--- to see Jane's Addiction.

Jane's Addiction in Aspen. Click 4 pix.Jane's was named the 35th greatest hard rock band of all time by VH1.  Origninal band members Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins imposed their will on the Aspen crowd from the first note.  Farrell admitted to being "wasted" as he took  big swallows from a bottle of red and immediately crowd surfed into the first number.  Navarro kept his cool despite a gaggle of very aggressive "groupie types" at the front of the stage.  One alleged stawker was removed by BUA security seconds after Navarro spied her in the crowd.   The boyz just kept rocking.  Perry puffed a few joints that were offered up from the crowd and dropped f-bomb after f-bomb.  His profane stage patter included lewd and lustful language about sex, drugs and rock and roll.   2 super-sexy back-up dancers, including Mrs Perry Farrell, contibuted to the animalistic, carnal ambience created by the band.

It was a BIG night.  Someone has to do it.  Click 4 pix.  JANE SAYS.
