Nine Inch Nails mini-review

Last night's concert was FUCKIN' A!!!!

Saw NIN at the koolhaus. I had the best standing spot, right behind the soundboard. They played four or five tracks from [WITH_TEETH], some standards like Terrible Lie, Closer and Suck. The real highlights, for me at least, was hearing Reptile, Burn, Something I Can Never Have and No, You Don't. That and seeing Trent play a tamborine. That just doesn't strike me as an industrial instrument. ProTools? Fuck that, hand me the tamborine, goddammit!!

On a related note... Mark. Where were you? I couldn't find you. There again, there were quite the number of Marks in line. I felt like I wanted to walk around with a sign saying:

The Cheshire Cat is looking for Marks On His Soul

That would've been odd...
So did you enjoy the night?

For real, you asked people? I was RIGHT AT THE FRONT. I asked one guy who I was sure was you, and he wasn't too friendly... so I stopped asking, but tried to make myself very visible.

It was a smashing concert, and I was particularly impressed with the Dresden Dolls. I knew that Trent would give a grade A show and enjoyed it al the same, but truthfully I was wowed by them.

And right by the soundboard...? After having enough of being pounded into the dividers from the audience to the stage I went over by the soundboard! Don't tell me we were standing next to each other...

Ahhhhhahahahaaaaaahahaaaaa I would laugh. Because it would be funny.

I was directly behind and between the sound mixer and the light ops. Right at the barrier. Now that sucks that we were that close and didn't know it.

What were you wearing? That'll help jog my memory.

Black button-down shirt and black camo pants. I blended in to the backdrop of black and more black. You?

I don't think I saw you then.

How tall are you?

I was wearing a tight long sleeve grey shirt with this design the colour of dried blood and tight faded jeans with some tears in them.
