Mob Mentality with Jane's Addiction at El Cid, Nov. 20

The set list consisted of equal parts Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual. It only took the first bass line of "Mountain Song" for all hell to break loose. Same goes for "Ain't No Right." The same guys who were so drunkenly pleasant outside had us ping-ponging back and forth and sideways between sweaty bodies and the wall. We simultaneously yelled back "goddamn radio" during "Stop" and softly sang "you take the high road, and I'll take the low" on "Chip Away," the night's thunderous finale, which had both Dave and Stephen dueling on the skins.

Stepping on discarded jackets and rolling beer bottles, we tripped away into the night. This would make a nice story for the grandkids someday.
