Show Information:

This listing is for the first ever Jane's Addiction show.

They were incorrectly billed as "James Addiction" in the ad for this show.

Jane's opened for a band called Love 'N' Terror.

The following is taken (incorrect spelling included) from page 3 of an early band bio submitted to Warner Bros. by the group.

Their first show was out of town in Orange County. It was "old dog night". All old dogs were let in free. They were booked with a top fourty cover band, who invited their I.B.M. friends from work to see them. "Jane's" got up and emptyed the place. There was one guy with a beard who stayed. They never learned the beard headed man's name, but they did discuss their differences, Leaving the band, the bartender, and the booker. The next show was at the Roxy. They were to support some faggy english band who they killed. They were great except for one thing, they stunk.

Thanks go out to Mike for uncovering this show!
