Rock icon celebrates alternative authenticity and underground culture with first show in Los Angeles on February 17th
Perry Farrell, often considered the godfather of alternative rock, and front man of Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros, and founder of the legendary music festival, Lollapalooza, has announced a new nightlife concert series, “Heaven After Dark.”
Cultivated in partnership with his wife, Etty Lau Farrell, Heaven After Dark focuses on iconic and emerging musicians, performance artists and varietal acts to showcase alternative music, underground culture into one cosmic event.
With it’s inaugural show in Los Angeles at the 1926 Room at the Belasco Theater on February 17, Heaven After Dark will consist of seven realms as attendees weave through the seven realms of heaven, they’ll embark on an audio sensory journey that introduces them to musicians, dancers, comedians and street performers along the way that narrate and shape the evening’s story.
Taking center stage, the show will culminate with Perry Farrell and Etty Lau Farrell, performing as Kind Heaven Orchestra; previous guests joining them have included an extensive list of legendary musicians. The final act of the night takes a more modern twist, enlisting a mix of unbridled joy and acid house energy as sharp DJs and producers bring the night into a spontaneous dance music frenzy.
Blending together an artistic fusion of old and modern art, cultural curators and notable music creatives, attendees will be exposed to one of the innovative and immersive entertainment-based events of the new year.
Farrell excitedly talks about his ambitions for Heaven After Dark, noting “After the extraordinary success of Lollapalooza, I’m honored to work alongside my wife, Etty, on this eccentric event series to create something just as revolutionary. I think now more than ever we need to come together to reignite the power of curiosity, collaboration, and diversity through visual and auditory art”. Heaven After Dark, Farrell claims, will be “An evening to be lived in the sublimity of the moment and the lasting memory of the mind.”
The event will be at the iconic 1926 Room at the Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, February 17. Perry Farrell is managed by Michael James and Ian Jenkinson. Show tickets can be found here.
