Porno for Pyros, Jane's Addiction Play Perry Farrell's 50th Birthday Party

Las Vegas is known for its decadence and debauchery, and that tradition continued on Saturday night (March 11) as Perry Farrell celebrated his 50th birthday at a topless lounge named Mirage’s Bare Pool. Fans and celebrities mingled at the event, and Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro even found time to tweet a few photos from the event.

Artist Shepard Fairey (designer of the Obama “Hope” posters) played DJ for the night and around 400 fans were invited. Among the guests performing were rapper Mickey Avalon, Juliette Lewis and a number of one-off super groups, the best of which seems to have been comprised of Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine and Sen Dog from Cypress Hill. Here’s hoping that no video footage of Billy Idol doing "Twist and Shout” with Wayne Kramer from the MC5 will surface.

The biggest surprise of the night was the reformation of the long dormant Porno for Pyros, who acted like it was the mid ‘90s all over again by performing a few tunes. The night was brought to a natural conclusion by Jane’s Addiction, who performed a four-song set ahead of their greatly anticipated tour with Nine Inch Nails this summer. [Spin]

Kramer didn't play Twist & Shout. He played on The Stooges song Down on the Street. Were you drunk and forgot to take notes?

Duh...

Jesus, do I feel old.
