Perry Farrell, godfather of alternative rock and front man of Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros, and founder of the legendary music festival, Lollapalooza, debuted his new nightlife concert series, “Heaven After Dark.” Cultivated in partnership with his wife, Etty Lau Farrell, Heaven After Dark focuses on iconic and emerging musicians, performance artists and varietal acts to showcase alternative music, underground culture into one cosmic event.
Heaven After Dark
An event for the next generation of clubs and youth culture featuring iconic artists with emerging musicians and performance art with the sharpest underground DJs and producers bringing a cultural blend of twisty art for a new generation delivering an evening that has to be lived and cannot be viewed on social media. Heaven After Dark brings together unique and eclectic and international culture enthusiasts through music and art. Inspiring an experience for a creative society with special regards for knowledge, diversity, curiosity and collaboration.
The inaugural show took place in Los Angeles at the 1926 Room at the Belasco Theater on February 17 with another event planned for next month.
Heaven After Dark consists of seven realms as attendees weave through the seven realms of heaven — an audio sensory journey with musicians, dancers, comedians and street performers along the way that narrate and shape the evening’s story.
Taking center stage, the show culminated with Perry Farrell and Etty Lau Farrell, performing as Kind Heaven Orchestra.
The final act of the night took a more modern twist, enlisting a mix of unbridled joy and acid house energy as sharp DJs and producers bring the night into a spontaneous dance music frenzy.
Blending together an artistic fusion of old and modern art, cultural curators and notable music creatives, one of the innovative and immersive entertainment-based events of the new year.

“After the extraordinary success of Lollapalooza, I’m honored to work alongside my wife, Etty, on this eccentric event series to create something just as revolutionary. I think now more than ever we need to come together to reignite the power of curiosity, collaboration, and diversity through visual and auditory art”.
“An evening to be lived in the sublimity of the moment and the lasting memory of the mind.”
