Stephen Malkmus, Bob Mould, The Shins, The Antlers, hanging out with Lower Dens, the Foo Fighters, Black Keys and the return from the dead of REFUSED. This is my final day at the Pukkelpop. Enjoy the adventure, I did.

Sexy dancers, Dave Navarro as a character from Game of Thrones, Perry Farrell smiling broadly and sticking out his ribs…what more could you want from Jane’s Addiction? Nothing, really. Check out the review and rad pics in this huge gallery.
