The Wellmont is a pretty nice venue. I saw M83 there in the fall and it was nice and small, which I think will be great for HTDA.

I will be at this show one way or the other. If I was to lose a hand in a freak cheese grating accident the night before, I would put a Band-Aid on that sh*t and go to the show. :)

Ugh I was hoping the tix would be a little cheaper than that, pre-sale tix will probably be $5-$10 cheaper with fees based on experience with NIN tix

Porkins
02-26-2013, 12:55 PM
i guess it doesn't really matter, I've had a paycheck saved away for this, so I'll get tix no matter what.

there is GA "pit" area in front of the stage. Also, at all past shows I've gone to at this venue, even the seating areas are GA. Meaning first come first served. But you can only get to the "pit" with GA tix.

the wellmont is small enough for basically everywhere in the theater to be reasonably close to the stage, so I wouldn't worry too much either way

Am I right, I need to take the NJ Transit bus to Montclair (e.g. from the Port Authority Bus Terminal)?
The last bus Montclair to NYC will be around 11:15 pm. It's weekend (sunday), there are no trains.

I assume, the concert will be finished around 11:00 pm.

I place zero value on a signed item that wasn't signed FOR me, personally. So if you want it signed for you, maybe even personalised or in the colour pen of your choosing, waiting is key. If you just wanna frame it to extend your HTDApenis, grab it from merch.

real cheap tix avail for both this show and the apollo on stubhub. and lots of them, meaning they will most likely only continue to drop in price as people are trying to dump em. u can easily get 2 tix for cheaper than the face value of one in the lower and upper mezz. might snag a pair this week so i can decide after a live show if i truly like or dislike them. im indifferent as of now.

There is parking right around the corner. As soon as you see the theatre on the right corner, make a right. A half block on the left is parking, then right across the street from there. I think its metered, if I remember correctly, or it may be free since its the weekend.

WTF!!! Tix as low as 7 & 10 bucks for both shows, feel like a dummy for buying presale tix. I think whoever booked the show over anticipated the demand, probably just one area show would've been a hot ticket, Wellmont show isn't even sold out, WHATEVER gonna be an awesome birthday for me no matter what

TOIOU/RITC VIDEO ROLL CALL

!!SHOW SPOILERS AHEAD!!

As you may or may not know, people from Reflecting In The Chrome and ThisOneIsOnUs got together to record and edit the Chicago show for an upcoming release. We shot the whole show with 5 high-end XDCAMs and two DSLRs and we are currently in the process of collecting any extra footage. As always with those projects, the more we have, the better. So we're going to call out for anyone who wants to record upcoming shows, here are a few tips to help make your footage match with ours if you'd like to contribute.

First of all, whereas we had passes and official permission to record the Chicago show, we cannot provide such help for upcoming shows. Some venues, like HoB in Boston, charge royalties for bands who want to record their shows. So it's even beyond the bands control. Although, for those who'll try to sneak in their gear anyway, read on :

We're going to try to refrain from using iPhone/Flip, etc footage and concentrate on higher end gear. You can still let us know if you shoot with those, but we can't promise we'll use it. However, if you've got a DSLR that shoots in 1080p (5D, 7D, 60D, etc), or a prosumer HD camcorder (Panasonic HVX-200/Sony EX1, EX3, FS100, NXCAM/etc), we're definitely takers!

Technical specs :
-Set EVERYTHING manually. No autofocus, no autoexposure, no auto white balance.
-DON'T EVER CUT : we need continuous shots of the entire show, including breaks between songs. If you cut, we'll have to manually resynch your video and that can be a pain in the ass, especially if you cut between each and every song. If for some reason you had to cut, let us know when you submit your footage.
-Record in 1920x1080, 24 frames per second, with the highest possible bitrate on your cameras.
-Use whichever Picture Profile's got the most dynamic range or manually set everything to neutral except contrast which you'll want to drop even more. If you shoot with a DSLR, I can't insist enough that you get Technicolor's CineStyle profile (https://www.technicolorcinestyle.com/forms/cinestyle-profile-download/). The image will look flat and lifeless but, trust us : that's what we need for color correction.
-Set & lock your white balance manually to 3200K. Don't try to make custom white balances with a sheet of white paper : these will always result in great difference between cameras for various reasons.
-Try to keep your ISO sensitivity as low as possible. It'd be best never to go over ISO 600. It probably won't be possible given the low light environment but keep that in mind anyway.
-Open your aperture as much as possible. Most Sony's will open up to f2.8 which is great for the lighting conditions.
-If you still don't have quite enough light, instead of boosting the ISO, you can slightly slow down the shutter speed (1/40 should be fine, but don't go below 1/30 or you'll get trails whenever there is movement).
-If your camera has such tools, I suggest you display your Histogram and your Peaking at all times. Histogram is a little graphic that shows which parts of the screen is over or underexposed. Slightly underexposed is okay, slightly overexposed is not okay in the digital world, so try to watch out for overexposure. Peaking will highlight all pixels that are sharp, which is going to make it much easier to focus especially on small LCD displays.
-If you are filming with a zoom from a single position for the entire show, zoom in as far as you can go, focus on the farthest thing you see. Everything in between will stay sharp and you won't have to worry again about focus.

-Try not to move around the venue too much. It's always better if you stay in one place and film from that spot the entire time. That way when we're editing, we're sure your angle will be usable at all times and won't have to worry that you're shaking or moving around. If you're zooming in or out and panning across the stage, make sure you stop long enough in between movements... In otherwords, don't just keep scanning and moving around : that's unusable. You want to make at least 30 seconds to a minute-long stops between each move for us to cut easily.
-If you've never heard of the Rule of thirds, read this carefully before going in (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds). Try not to frame anything dead center unless you're filming a very wide shot. Always put your subject on one third of the image.


What we most need :
-Dynamic, handheld shots from the pit.
-Closeups. As per Rob's indication though : don't bother trying to get closeups when the band is hidden behind the screens. They are meant to be hidden, the show is all about video projections at those points. Ice age and Fur-lined, by exemple, will give you better opportunities to film the performers and zoom in real close.
-We'll still take everything else you shoot, though.

Postproduction :
-I will need you upload your original, uncompressed data (if you shoot with camcorders, I need the entire card structure and not just the video files) to your own DropBox account (or whichever hosting site you like, WeTransfer, etc) and then share it with me. If you record on cameras with higher bitrates like P2s, we might need you to send a HDD for which we might be able to cover shipping.
-My DropBox account for you to share your files with me : pp.chevigny-le.blanc@umontreal.ca
-When you submit your footage, make sure your mention your online screen name, your full name and address, cellphone number so we can keep in touch.


I think that's it. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at either ones of those addresses :
ppchevigny@filmssix.com
pp.chevigny-le.blanc@umontreal.ca

Most importantly : enjoy yourselves!
-Pier-Philippe

Very cool show, prob about 20 fans waited by the bus after but we just got the quick cold shoulder (not even a wave Trent?!) no big deal though, they got kids on the tour bus so thats where the priority is. Loved the visuals I stood right in front of the soundboard, not sure if it was just the spot or the venue in whole but it sounded really good. A great show but I don't know, I just didn't feel the magic in the air like I have any time I've seen NIN. Cool to see Trent as a sidekick and not the front man, but I'm ready for NIN's return, this was a very nice way to bridge the gap though.

04-29-2013, 05:46 AM
Well I could've been rail but my gut said to go to the soundboard and boy was it right. I ended up standing next to some cool guys from Philly that knew as much as I did about NIN/HTDA and this made the time go by quickly waiting for the show. I didn't watch the Coachella stuff because I wanted to be surprised and I'm glad I didn't because it was truely an awesome show. The sound at the Wellmont was fantastic but if there was one complaint.....HDTA was kinda quiet. Other than that they provided an Sonic/Visual delite that no recording can reproduce so I'm glad I made the 2 Hr trip from Wilkes Barre PA to Montclair NJ.....it was worth it

Last night was great, but I needed a little time to process everything. A friend of mine and I made a two and a half hour drive for the show. We got there super early, and tooled around town for a while. When we finally made it to the venue we were only about 15 people from the door in the presale line. Waiting in line for a signed poster was unexpected, but no worries. It was nice to meet UninTY , ThinkIcouldburn , and jessamineny . I'm Glad I could help you with the extra ticket jessamineny ! I really enjoyed the live set. I like the EP, and the album, but seeing them live made it all seem more real. I feel that I will have a deeper appreciation for this music from now on. I really envy people who were able to catch multiple dates on this tour. I'm also sad for those who can't catch even one. This was something special. It's difficult to explain, and it must be seen live to understand. I tried not to complain about anything from last night, but I do have to point out the rudeness from parts of the crowd. There was a interesting mix of fans, people wanting to try something new, and clueless mouth breathers. Somehow I found myself surrounded by people with no concert etiquette for the last half of the set. There were people having LOUD conversations about menial bullshit during the quietest parts of the songs. As the music became louder they would increase the volume of their voices as if the music was inconveniencing them. Another group of jerks were arguing about how many more drinks one had over the other during Strings and Attractors. There was a shrill woman behind me that was told at one point to shut up. Her response was, "it's okay; they already played my favorite song!" Last but not least, at the encore a man who looked and smelled homeless popped up next to me. No exaggeration, he was smoking crack. Crack. Literally he was squatting down on the floor, taking a hit from a stem, getting up and wigging out for a bit, three minutes later, squat, repeat. . . There were more crowd assholes, but I digress. . . All that aside It was great night, and a fun trip.

Did she just start crying? Did she finish it?

I believe she's cried at a few other performances as well. She also grips the mic stand tightly, shaking. I think she is channeling something very emotional in order to achieve the desired vocal delivery for Ice Age. She didn't break down or anything, just faltered a little bit with the timing and delivery at a couple spots. I was directly in front of her at the rail, and seeing her put this much effort into the song was inspiring.

I had a hard time hearing Mariqueen while she was talking to the crowd before A Drowning. Did anyone hear her clearly?

The only thing that she said was how it was an important show for them because they were at the end of their tour, and Trent said Thank You twice throughout the night, that was it.

Does anyone have an idea of what was played between Diiv and HTDA? I think I caught Bahaus and MBV.

Seems like I am the only one who found it stange to see her cry during her first song alone after opening up the stage.. The way she was standing there, not moving at all and then starting to shake.. i found those moments very uncomfortable.. it didn't feel natural, it felt like she kept telling herself that now is the time to cry.
But overall a great show.. Especially the light show kicked ass! I am not quite sure how i like those fitted dress shirts on trent thou... but what can you do...

Last night was great, but I needed a little time to process everything. A friend of mine and I made a two and a half hour drive for the show. We got there super early, and tooled around town for a while. When we finally made it to the venue we were only about 15 people from the door in the presale line. Waiting in line for a signed poster was unexpected, but no worries. It was nice to meet @UninTY (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=839) , @ThinkIcouldburn (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=168) , and @jessamineny (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=342) . I'm Glad I could help you with the extra ticket @jessamineny (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=342) ! I really enjoyed the live set. I like the EP, and the album, but seeing them live made it all seem more real. I feel that I will have a deeper appreciation for this music from now on. I really envy people who were able to catch multiple dates on this tour. I'm also sad for those who can't catch even one. This was something special. It's difficult to explain, and it must be seen live to understand. I tried not to complain about anything from last night, but I do have to point out the rudeness from parts of the crowd. There was a interesting mix of fans, people wanting to try something new, and clueless mouth breathers. Somehow I found myself surrounded by people with no concert etiquette for the last half of the set. There were people having LOUD conversations about menial bullshit during the quietest parts of the songs. As the music became louder they would increase the volume of their voices as if the music was inconveniencing them. Another group of jerks were arguing about how many more drinks one had over the other during Strings and Attractors. There was a shrill woman behind me that was told at one point to shut up. Her response was, "it's okay; they already played my favorite song!" Last but not least, at the encore a man who looked and smelled homeless popped up next to me. No exaggeration, he was smoking crack. Crack. Literally he was squatting down on the floor, taking a hit from a stem, getting up and wigging out for a bit, three minutes later, squat, repeat. . . There were more crowd assholes, but I digress. . . All that aside It was great night, and a fun trip.

great to meet you too!
