Sounds like Jane's Addiction is more or less a lock to play tonight's Playboy/C3 Presents super-exclusive late-night party at an old supermarket at 1107 N. IH-35 this evening starting around 11. It's pretty much the most popular rumor making the rounds at SXSW at this point - Rocks Off has heard it several times, and according to today's Austin American-Statesman, the band's Web site lists a "private event" in Austin tonight on its calendar page. And Jane's frontman Perry Farrell is also partners with C3 in a little "private event" called Lollapalooza.
You do the math.
Rocks Off has heard that Motley Crue and MGMT will be joining Jane's, but the evidence is much more circumstantial; i.e. someone who seemed to know what he was talking about told me, but it's otherwise unconfirmed. For some reason, our C3 invitation got lost in the mail, but we have our ways of finding out what's going on.

Rocks Off is probably just going to go to bed - hey, it happens - but if you still feel like burning the late-night oil (or, you know, whatever else people burn), try this: Houston mixmasters GRRRL PARTS, Ceeplus Bad Knives and Damon Allen are teaming up for a tripleheader at 2 a.m. tonight at the Iona Compound, 701 Tillery St. on the Eastside near the railroad tracks.
