All Ages Outdoor Concert
It's true! Jane said! All Ages outdoor concert!!
Imagine, for a moment, a world in which Jane's Addiction never existed. Nothing's Shocking was never released in the summer of '88. Lollapalooza never launched three summers later. Perry Bernstein remained on the East Coast, never boarding that Greyhound Bus and heading across country to Los Angeles like so many dreamers and visionaries before him did. What kind of world would that be?No kind of world we'd want to live in.
Without Jane's Addiction, there might still have been a Soundgarden, an Alice in Chains, a Nine Inch Nails, a Rage Against the Machine, and even a Nirvana, but they wouldn't sound the same. As Tom Morello said when inducting Jane's into Guitar Center's Rock Walk of Fame in June 2011: "Nirvana often gets credit for being the first 'alternative' band to break through, the band that changed music and led rock out of the hair metal wilderness of the '80's. That's just not true. It was Jane's Addiction."
As the years have passed, Jane's Addiction have kept pace in a modern culture that the band helped to expand and progress. They didn't invent the metal fan who also loves rap. That kid already existed. So did the Goth kid who also owned Zeppelin records. But before all music and information was instantly available, Jane's did enlighten the metal fan who'd never even had a chance to hear rap — or industrial or prog or British indie — and that metal fan is better and more open-minded for it. And now, so are their children. "In 1988, Jane's Addiction saved my life," Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has said. Jane's didn't invent modern rock, but they turned modern rockers into an enduring and inclusive tribe. "Jane's was the only band I saw in those times who had that 'I-will-follow-them-anywhere type' of crowd. There were a lot of great bands around at that time," Henry Rollins told Spin, "but Jane's had this tribal thing happening with their fans. It was very powerful."

Friday July 31 @ 9pm doors
Common Kings music is an array of head-rocking beats, relatable lyrics and feel- good vibes. Each of the band members’ personality spills over into Common Kings sound, producing phenomenal pop hits infused with the boys’ love of their Polynesian roots; rock, reggae, and R&B influences; and a live show that is as soothing as it is exhilarating.
The band, comprised of Bass Player Lui Kirimaua (Ivan), Lead Singer Sasualei Maliga (Junyer), Drummer Jerome Taito (Rome), and Lead Guitar Player Taumata Grey (Mata), forged a bond during a jam session at Ivan’s house and Common Kings was born. The band name: a nod to the fact that the boys are both proud representatives of their home lands of Samoa, Fiji, Tonga and Hawaii, and everyday guys from Orange County, California trying to live out their dreams.
Tickets: $30 adv. ONLINE $35 door.
