    How to destroy angels: live 2013

    Might as well start a new thread. This seems to be the tour name based on http://tour.destroyangels.com

    As i mentioned in other thread, the golden state theater has been a client in the past, so theres a minor oppurtunity for me to film that performance. The owner really likes to shoot the events. Either way im super stoked. That place is quite tiny and has great acoustics. Downtown monterey is so small i coupd imagine traffoc being derailed just for the lines that form naturally at trent shows.

    Seeing as Coachella is streamed live on Youtube, live recordings of this tour are guaranteed - though does anyone know a good way to rip the live youtube streams? I don't want to rely on Coachella's "best of" not including HTDA.

    Alright, anyone who's ever been to The Vic in Chicago. How does that place work? Is it like The Aragon where it's all GA including the Balcony or do shows typically have Reserved Balcony seating and GA Floor?

    Looks like I will be heading to Boston. Wooooo!!!

    As for modlife handling their presale ticketing, I am not a huge fanof theirs. I am hoping that they will be able to handle the traffic.

    Also, I'm definitely aiming for Boston (my office is right around the corner from HoB), and maybe the Wellmont and Apollo shows as well.

    I would assume the typical 10am or Noon.

    Can't wait for sf!

    I know the odds are small, but I'm hoping for gig posters from a variety of artists instead of just Rob (or frankly, not Rob at all).

    Getting pre-sale tickets for any Trent related thing always stresses me the fuck out. Trying to get tickets to Waves Goodbye was terrible...

    The main balcony is normally general admission, but it is pretty cramped/steep and has seats. I’m not sure about the side little balconies. On the plus side the acoustics are not too bad there. In my opinion it is a much better experience than the Aragon, but it is 1/4 the size too.

    The fact that it's so small really excites me. Really really hoping that I am able to score tickets to this.

    Thisll be nice for the wife too... she never got to see nin. Currently fishing to see if theres a video element to this performance. Everybody wins if thats the case...

    Its really nice this is coming to monterey... i was begining to think i wasnt going to see them on this round. Kind of odd to think of trent in a seat only venue but... any of you guys heading out here?

    Yeah my first concert in Chicago was at the Vic Theater, it was Jonsi in 2010 and there isn't a bad spot to see the band in the whole venue in my opinion. The stage is elevated enough that people on the floor all the way in the back can see what's going on and the venue is small enough that those in the balcony feel close enough. It's almost hard to explain.

    I may not be fully behind this project but the idea of seeing Trent Reznor live again in such an intimate venue is really exciting as well. May have to look into this for next week when they go on sale....

    ....though I'm even more interested in all these cryptic possible hints at NIN live again as well.

    Has anyone seen a show at the Sound Academy (Toronto)? I have read quite a few bad reviews. This will be the only show I can make it to so I will be going regardless. Hopefully someone will have something good to say about the place. I haven't been able to find the capacity of the place either?

    I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but it's an ugly venue. I'm actually very disappointed that this was the venue chosen for TOR, but I won't complain too much as there are a bunch of factors that go into these decisions.

    The SA now generally employs a two tier ticket system (GA/VIP). VIP allows you to the upper balcony where it is easier to get drinks and has actual sloped seating. Either way, it won't stop the general terrible acoustics of the SA.

    Here's hoping HTDA's team can figure out a way to deliver the best sound I've heard out of the SA ever.

    Well, I'll just have to hope against hope to get in on the general public sale. Can't do the presale, because I may very well be on tour with someone else by the end of April. Wouldn't want to buy a ticket I can't use. Poo.

    Thanks for the info. It won't keep me from making the 4 hour trip from Michigan since I have faith TR can still pull off a great show. The NIN crew did manage to make the Aargon ballroom in Chicago sound good.

    Question about the balcony: If I purchased the VIP tickets, it sounds like I would at the very least be able to see the stage better. Have you noticed that the acoustics are any worse up in the balcony or about the same?


    Edit : I just noticed a couple of people are already voicing their concerns about the venue to Rob on twitter. It must be pretty bad.

    For any Toronto concert-goer, the Sound Academy has been the kiss of death for some time now. Book anywhere but there is pretty much the motto. I will say that they have done some renovations and made some improvements (it used to be MUCH worse, if you can believe that). Problem is, they either have by far the cheapest contracts and/or the best booking agent in the world, as they basically get all of the best non arena shows in the city now. As a result I'm forced to go there much more than I would like, and it's a shame too because in the summer it's an awesome view of the city and nice to be down by the water. They also have ideal smoking conditions for a toker like myself. A few bands have managed to surpass the acoustic issues since they've opened it up a bit more, TV on the Radio being one of them. I've also seen pretty decent shows from Queens and Them Crooked Vultures there, as well as Deftones, M83, and Alexisonfire.

    At the end of the day, of course I would have preferred the highly underrated and vastly underused Kool Haus, and this is far from ideal but it's manageable. Just don't expect to be able to move around much, don't drink or use the bathroom (no soap no hope you touch your dick you wash your hands! if you've ever taken a piss there you will get that joke), don't expect to be able to go out to your car to dump any merch/poster (so fucking stupid), and expect for it to be filled with way more people than it can be expected to reasonably hold for that kind of venue, and you'll make it through just fine. Sometimes the hate for the building becomes larger than life, but it's really just another poorly thought out venue. I think if they didn't book SOO many shows and gave some other places a shot at some decent acts, their reputation wouldn't be nearly as bad. That, and if they sold a lot less tickets (or if you are seeing an act that won't sell out), as I've also been there when they cut the floor in half and it is a million fucking times better that way.

    Not sure about time yet, but I'm positive it will be through Modlife. From the tour site:

    "We're working with a new partner, Modlife, for HTDA ticketing, merch, and album sales. We think this will lead to a better purchasing experience all around."

    I really hope that they announce the presale times soon. I'm going to have to secure the "F5 time" off from work. . .

    It sucks that the NJ show is right outside NYC, because to get to either one would cost as much, if not more, than the ticket itself. I mean, I should be glad I could potentially get there with a combination of train and bus, but it's just not going to happen.
    Good luck to everyone else.
