This was an impromptu appearance that took place a few days after the band's appearance at The Standard Hotel.
This is from the Jun 6, 2002 issue of L.A. Weekly:
Downtown was a computer-geek cornucopia last week, as the interactive-entertainment industry's ultimate gathering, E3 EXPO AND CONFERENCE, took over the Civic Center, with four days and three nights of high-tech hijinks. Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's PlayStation2 both threw parties, but it was the latter, held at the new STANDARD HOTEL, which provided the biggest bash of celebs, rockers and cell-phonies. On a huge platform outside of the hotel, a rotating bar served up stiff ones, while surprisingly loose celebs including TV punkette KELLY OSBOURNE, Spidey boy TOBEY MAGUIRE, Charmed one ALYSSA MILANO and rappin' hair-raiser COOLIO played video games and got jiggy to JANE'S ADDICTION and JA RULE. Jane's singer PERRY FARRELL (looking very Saturday Night Feverin a white leisure suit and black shirt) and guitarist DAVE NAVARRO sounded better than ever, especially on old faves such as the medley of Lou Reed's "Rock 'n' Roll" and the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" (which they also performed a few days later during an impromptu jam at Amoeba Music). Other familiar faces such as HUGH HEFNER, FRED DURST, DAVID SPADE, STEPHEN DORFF, COURTENEY COX and DAVID ARQUETTE hung out in more low-key areas of the soiree, such as the hotel lobby, where Chateau Marmont's chrome-dome drag dom CONSTANCE, trusty riding crop at the ready, made sure nobody spilled their cocktails on the plush pink sofas. Not that she had much to fear: Security guards actually checked the hue of everyone's libations as they entered, the mantra at the door being, "No colored drinks, clear only," and anything that could stain the furniture was not allowed in. Hasn't this country had enough segregation?
