Or maybe playing with Garbage a handful of times every couple of years pays a lot more than any of us realize? :noclue:


it probably does but he hasn't played a payed show since 2010 (jane's) has he?

He doesn't need a good job. Besides for all the money he made in the past when Jane's, Alanis and Garbage were relevant, he probably made a few hundred thousand between Ninja and the few festival shows in 2.0.

This was a recent tweet by him

Just think, if he had stayed in Jane's Eric could've played his Speed Racer bass at the Indy 500 show.

I like that O.A.R. hasn't been mentioned. I know those guys well. Two of them were neighbors of mine for quite a while. I was actually emailing with one of them today. Nice kids, all of them. Grew up together in Maryland. Had a band. Decided if they all went to the same college they could keep the band together so they all went to Ohio State and became a very popular hard working college club band. Have headlined the Garden. Write new music and tour the shit out of it. Like each other but have grown up and live scattered around the country now, some with wives and kids. What they play music isn't my cup of tea and probably wouldn't be to most of us here but it's musical and sincere and crowd pleasing and they never stop making their many fans happy.

All in all it's the most bizarre bill ever. But who knows? Summer is months away. It seems clear that they'll be playing some festivals. They could top this. Every state fair has a concert series, as far as I know. I went to one in Western Pennsylvania some years back when they totally bizarrely booked Ween, Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth for one of their shows. It was all shitkickers and wife beaters the other nights but that night was wild. And the best cherry pie competition was pretty sweet, although it smelled a bit like the pig shit in the next tent. Maybe Jane's can get on one of those. Or open for the Fresh Beat Band. Daevid Allen died today. (RIP) Perry can get back on the rock and do some gigs with Gong. Now that they have told us that a show at a racecar event with .38 Special isn't below them, we can only dream.

I will. they're nice guys who tend to speak positively of other musicians. and the guy I'm closest to has love for punk rock and l.a. rock. my guess is that he'll say 'hey those guys are fun rock stars who plug in and play well and entertain'. either that or they'll will leave after their set and have a night gig somewhere else. I'm curious if their paths will even meet. most of these mobile shows just have separate trailers for dressing rooms and there's not a lot of chummy love. I doubt perry will spend much time in the meal tent.

He's played twice with them here (tomorrow will be his second time). I'm old and cheap so I'm going to watch them cozy and warm online. Also, they are not top bill.

Perry won't have time to hit the meal tent. He's too busy Always Partyin'

Funny that they are playing with 38 Special since Perry is probably bringing along 38 Not Special.

I did a little reading on them. They aren't too young to understand the grassroots 1.0 version and as you say one is a bit of a historian. If any juicy nuggets come up.....

everyone is boycotting anything to do indiana. does janes cancel? i doubt it.

just saw this today

Wilco just announced via Twitter that it has canceled an upcoming concert date in Indianapolis in protest of the state’s controversial new “religious freedom” law. In two tweets, the group stated, “We’re canceling our 5/7 show in Indianapolis. ‘Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act’ feels like thinly disguised legal discrimination... Hope to get back to the Hoosier State someday soon, when this odious measure is repealed. Refunds available at point of purchase.”

Wilco. :rockon:

I'd be interested to see what JA does too. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt they would be willing to give up a pay cheque.

it's not really their show. it's a paid corporate show and who knows how the contract works but it could cost them money. :noclue:

i could see dave having an issue....but perry... who knows?

I'm sure they'll play as normal, with Perry spouting some gibberish against it between songs a couple times to a smattering of applause.
