Just came back from Bossier City, La., where I managed to get into the skybox seats at the CenturyTel Center to see NIN live. Trent, head shaved, was Trent. His visuals are stirring, his music drives, he has something to say. Guitars and keyboards were smashed at the end. It was cathartic to watch, and I'm not the "jump around and go crazy" music type. I'm that "on-the-verge-of-geeky, into-music-for-its-beauty" type. Girlfriend complained about the crushed instruments. I mentioned they were cheapo's and that calmed her down. Really great tour. Played songs from the new album as well as from The Fragile. Get a ticket.
