If the term eccentricity could be personified, Perry Farrell just may be that person. He has managed to do everything in his own unique manner over a musical career that spans more than 30 years, including two major bands — Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros, a solo career, and the creation of the world famous concert festival, Lollapalooza.

Sometimes, nothing feels better than returning home. After opening for Wolfmother on their tour of the east coast, Montgomery County, Maryland’s Lionize got to finish the tour in front of their hometown fans at the 9:30 Club recently.

Wolfmother must have been worried about the extra baggage fees when flying to the USA, because with the exception of the band’s instruments, the 9:30 Club stage was left completely bare upon the band’s entrance recently.

Often times when people go to a concert, they want an escape from the day’s headlines and news. But at City Winery recently, that distraction was not possible. Duff McKagan showed up to the intimate venue on the night of his new solo album, Tenderness, release. With the album tackling current and relevant topics including opioid abuse, school shootings, sexual assault, and mental health and suicide, a night of mindless escapism was not on the table.
