For the first time--since headlining Lollapalooza's maiden voyage in 1991--the original Jane's Addiction lineup, including long-estranged bassist Eric Avery, will reunite in Los Angeles on April 23rd. The occasion: NME's inaugural awards ceremony, during which the band will be bestowed with the "God Like Genius" award, in recognition of their contributions to alternative rock. It has not been confirmed, as of yet, if the band will perform.

Avery's impressive solo album, Help Wanted, was released last week on indie label Dangerbird.
