    Saw MM at Observatory in CA Oct 2014.. (anyone know if he's hit bottom yet?)
    -he was pretty fucked up
    -sounded like shit
    -had oral bromancing moments throughout show, apparently he really missed JW
    -pathetically begged for after show pussy -the entire show- kept repeating his single status
    -almost fell off some high rise platform stairs
    -still using over-used mic props for different songs
    --was pretty lame; guess that sounds like hating. it sucks to watch anybody go down this path, one can only hope that they find their way back to be part of the living instead of ferociously banging on death's door--

    Jeordie came out to parking lot shortly after show with (I presume) his wife n R2D2 rolling luggage bag in hand-
    **i guess i missed the whole greatness of LIVE MM; saw em twice..1st as NIN openers and last at this show as burnout drugged up pathemo**

    Been a few years since I was on ETS. Coming back for the fun. Will be at Aftershook Festival, VIP ticket, flying from Arizona. Looking forward to like the one show I can get to!

    Got my VIP ticket for Saturday back in June when they first went on sale. After seeing NIN in Bakersfield two days ago (which was a fantastic show), I wasn't sure about doing Aftershock. I much prefer the intimacy of a smaller venue, and probably wouldn't have bought the festival ticket if I'd known about Bakersfield at the time.

    But then I got on this thread, and saw all the ETSers who are going to Aftershock (some of whom I met in Bakersfield, like ManBurning), and am now looking forward to it again.

    Need help... I was about to buy a pair of VIP tickets + premium parking, but found out they don't do international shipping, which only leaves will call...

    Just how difficult is it to make it to Discovery Park? Does it make any sense to drive up to the box office then to go all the way back out to park? Should I expect insane traffic?
    Thoughts?

    I feel the same way about festivals. I'd much rather see them in smaller venues, like the one we saw in Bakersfield. I probably wouldn't have bought aftershock as well having known about Bakersfield first, but at least I'm getting more bang for my buck there, tons of other acts to check out, and this time my girlfriend will be coming down with me. It'll be her first NIN show, I would have rather had her experience a more smaller/intimate show for her first, so she could see what the hell was going on (She's only like 5'4 and can't see shit in a pit, especially at a festival), but it'll still be fun regardless. I'm stoked for it. I just hope we get a couple different songs than we did at Bakersfield. More new stuff from either EP would be nice.

    They have a few months in between sets to rehearse a few more songs, but I'm not expecting any kind of crazy drastic revamping of the setlist, but as long as it's not a copy of a copy of a copy of the Bakersfield set, I'm happy.

    Oh, and I only have regular GA... So i'm kind of kicking myself for not getting VIP now... no way I'm waiting in a festival lineup/pit all day for front row this time, lol. That's suicide.

    Will call only?? Hmm... I better double check my order. I could have sworn I will be getting mine as e-tickets. Was there no print at home e-ticket option for you?
    I believe I had one.

    Just take public transit to the festival. Who wants to deal with driving in California traffic, especially for a festival. People who were at the Bakerfield NIN show, said it took them 3 hours to get out of the traffic jam that was at that TOOL show in San Bernardino last month.
    Expect Sacramento to be just as bad. Will have traffic from San Francisco and San Jose and quite possibly even LA coming up.
    Always avoid taking a car to a music festival if possible.

    Yeah because I wanted to take premium parking to avoid the bus ride. Thanks, I'll just take regular parking at Sleep Train arena.

    So with today's announcement of the surprise show at Webster hall, this gives us hope that there could be other surprise shows scheduled around the other festival dates, including aftershock.

    That would be so epic if they did a surprise club show. If they did announce one, do you guys think it will be the day immediately after NIN's performance, the Sunday? I have tickets for the full weekend, and while I don't care if I miss Ozzy/Manson on day 2 for a chance to see NIN again at a smaller venue with a better setlist. Problem is, my girlfriend would absolutely murder me if I left her alone at aftershock, lol.

    Guess we'll just wait and see what happens after Riot Fest in Chicago. If a surprise show gets announced there, then chances of one after Aftershock is highly likely as well.

    Safe bet would be that the surprise show would be in SF and not Sacto imo.

    Damn... emergency hitchhike to San Fran? lol

    If that's the case, I'll have to let that one slide. Especially if it's on the Sunday.

    To girlfriend: "OK hun, you enjoy Manson rolling in puke on the stage and ozzy mooning the crowd with his wrinkly ass while reading his lines from a teleprompter in front of him, I'm off to San Fran. I'll meet you back in Canada" lol

    I noticed nothing is booked at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium at that weekend.

    Come on Sunday show!
