Any 'old people' & long time Jane's fans?

Tue, Sep 6, 2011 at 8:21 AM

Here to introduce myself: Andrea from Brooklyn and I've been a Jane's fan since middle school... now I'm somewhere in my 30's and don't you just love it when you've found one of those bands that still grows with you? I still have my well worn VCR tape of The Gift... which is that on DVD yet? I love their movies; they should have done more in my opinion, because (honestly) who doesn't want to see someone accidentally set a chicken on fire? Anyway, would love to share memories of JA with other fans. Oh, and obviously their music... what really needs to be said?

With love, Andrea

    Hey Andrea, Discovered Jane's while at college now 46, wow doesn't seem that long ago. First show was in St.louis on the Nothing's Shocking tour. I have all of their albums on the play list i listen to at work, their music never gets old only the fans. Really glad i found this site. It is great to see that other people are as Addicted as i'am. Bad pun,just had to. would love to chat. i have meet very few people that are Jane's fans. They do not know what they are missing.
    Live long and prosper, Art

    was like this is like Playing to Gilligan's Island he had the orchestra pit Filled with ANVIL Road Crates and plywood laid ontop then SAID COME up CLOSE
    - off hand don't remember if that was also the SHOW( backastage footage ) that was Filmed for their Home VIDEO "SOUL KISS" if not it was one of the other Paramount shows

    1989 seattle moore th ( 1 of 2 nights ) after BUSH was elected president PERRY said to the CROWD "Who Is the First Person who is going to shoot BUSH , GUESS I WILL because IDIOTS RULE
    that was a NO NO ( evolved Police and or FBI) He was not JAILED
    at same SHOW or previous show ( they played two nights ) Me and me gal was walked in by DAVE and we got to Set up in the Balcony BOX I DOVE from up there into the ORCHESTRA PIT to HEAD WALK across the CROWD , as I DOVE me gal Grabed me Skate pants and kinda Pulled them DOWN so at First I was laying on top of crowd until I made to me FEET and did the HEAD WALKING

    Thankx TED GARNER for the Passes after the WALK IN

    the Santa Barbara show 1989 we headed down to the SHOW we was not informed it was a EARLY show
    we called into the Mangement and was TOLD well they are On STAGE RIGHT NOW so we mISSED the SHOW , but No FEAR as we was also GOING to the FILLMORE SF shows
    we was so LUCKY to have obtained 8 of the Famous SF FILLMORE show POSTERS which we got two SIGNED later ( one poster was missing EA's signature but other had all 4 .

    -- two bands I had gotten BROKEN RIBS from many times 1 JANE's ADDICTION , 2 NIRVANA pre 1991 era
    CHENEY WA 1991 , I Fell off the balcony during a DIABETIC LOW BLOOD SUGAR after Burning so MUCH energy during the SHOW I was trying to get to BUY ORANGE juice
    so many GOOD TIME at JANE's ADDICTION SHOWS -- I will be seeing them 1st time in 24 yrs This coming SATURDAY IN ALASKA , Hoping to FILM the show For FANS

    I am So HOPING they will Perform NOTHING SHOCKING in entirety with encore as
