Perry Farrell and his Cosmic Crew Land at the Fillmore (SLIDESHOW)

in SF Concert Reviews by

Perry Farrell introduced his latest musical venture to concert attendees at the Fillmore last night. It was an evening filled with captivating groovy tunes and far out messages from the legendary rock n roll icon famous for fronting bands like Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros.

Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven Orchestra is a team of musicians and performers handpicked by Farrell himself, that combine visuals and sounds to create a unique and immersive experience for its audience. Made up of former Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain, Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, Matt Rohde (keyboard), Nick Maybury (guitar), and Farrell’s wife Etty Lau Farrell (vocals), the group played a varied setlist at the legendary venue. Perry Farrel songs like “Blue Cheerfulness,” “Machine Girl,” “Snakes Have Many Hips,” got the crowd dancing, as well as some selections from his older catalog including “Pets” by Porno for Pyros and “Jane Says,” by Jane’s.

The concert followed The Festival of Lights that took place on Bill Graham Menorah Day following the annual lighting ceremony in Union Square. Also performing that evening was Balkan Bump, and Jerry’s Kosher Deli.
