    Honestly, the very front of the stage is a weird spot for a guy whose only instrument is apparently a very small rectangular synth. Not a ton of room for theatrics in that performance.

    Although, can any of you synth guys maybe tell me what Atticus is doing that Alessandro can't do? Honestly, shouldn't Alessandro be in the front since he's doing a lot more moving around and also playing bass and stuff?

    FWIW, Trents playing this.

    At first I thought it was the new MPC but its just a controller.

    It's especially wierd because doesn't Atticus play bass is his other band? And yet they got Ally in the back doing synth, bass, AND guitar.

    I totally thought Atticus was going to be on bass duty for this tour. He was on bass for the Twin Peaks performance if I recall correctly.
    Was shocked that Ally held down bass for the majority of songs. I think there were more synth heavy songs than normal though, Robin was playing synth half the time as well.
    There was one point (forget the song) that Robin was literally just standing there and kind of swaying back and forth with nothing in his hands as he didn't know what to do, lol.

    The cover wow! It is one thing to do a coverer tribute of an artist, but when you can 'engineer' multiple voices into sounding like/taking on the actual attributes of another's / 'ghosting a voice' (I experienced serious chills as when I closed my eyes I could 'hear' only and all of Bowie voice and natural inflections in the vocals... I don't know if that makes sense at all; this is how I experienced the song anyway.) If anyone had the opportunity to catch the Outside/Dissonance tour circa 1995/96, you may have had the same flashback moments of 'membering as I had (Columbus, OH show); Reznor and Bowie sharing the stage and vividly hearing both vocals on Reptile, Bowie using some alternate lyrics and then an OMG moment when Reptile started at the Bakersfield show, I believe this is the moment when I lost my shit.

    During my stop at Amoeba I found a LIVE show (Bowie and NIN)
    CD
    Back In Anger: 1995 Radio Transmissions (2 x CD SET)

    Bought it and we listened to it on the way home. The sound mixing/engeineering(?) on this CD might sound familiar if you compare to Bakersfield show.

    So I finally recovered from the show. I drove 11 hours and pulled into Bakersfield at 6:30pm Wednesday. I left for home immediately after the show and drove all night as I had to work the next day. 22 hours driving in a 26.5 hour period. Brutal but so worth it.

    Surprisingly, the highlight of the show for me was Parasite. It was awesome, new and exciting. However, I wanted Mariqueen to come on stage and then follow Parasite with She's Gone Away. That would've been so bad ass.
    Reptile was probably the best I'd heard it live. It was like hearing it for the first time. It was so heavy! Loved it.

    I couldn't help but wonder after it was all over if Trent ever gets sick of playing the same 10-12 songs every show. Not that I get sick of hearing them but its surprising how predictable his shows have become. I hate to admit, I expected a better setlist, especially at this show. I was disappointed that so few new songs were played. I understand he has to play the hits, but can't he play fewer per show and cycle them? This is my 7th time seeing them, and the first time I've felt a little let down. For those of you who see them over and over, how do you keep from getting bored? I LOVE NIN and see them every opportunity I get, but I'm starting to really want variation (and not just in lighting or production). Thoughts?

    Sometimes it's the m&g's and sound checks and more recent ARG thrown into the mix that keeps the fire going. not just band m&g's but the ppl m&g's too. at least that was the way with spiral(?) meet up's pre and post show, hanging during show. sometimes it was a rolling party moving from one concert end and off to the next venue, car pooling, hotel sharing (it seems like there was a time we had six+ ppl in a hotel room; 3 ppl to each bed plus a rollaway (maybe that was a Vegas show?) and then things get really crazy when everyone starts with the 'memory berries.....

    *yawn*, I finally found some time to write this up.

    Getting to the venue, I can't believe how small it was.

    NIN sounded great but I would be remiss to say that I was bummed to hear THTF right after Wish. I knew the end was near. I know some people had some expectations on the setlist being diverse but I kept my expectations low. "Parasite" did take me by surprise.

    Love hearing Alessandro and Robin do the vocals for songs on NTAE.

    Reptile is heavy as fuck.

    Random tidbits:
    -Steven, Trent's tech, tells me Trent is using a combination of Kemper Profilers and Guitar Rig through Mainstage. Steven wanted to transfer the rig to Fractal but couldn't due to time.
    -No young people at the show.
    -@Eichalvindore that's you and your son dancing in the floor right? If so, I hope to do that someday when I have a son/daughter.
    -I discovered there is an ET parody porn. Thanks Tobacco!
    -Met Scott from OC Weekly and he gave me a heads up to leave the venue right after "Hurt" to avoid the crowds getting their poster.
    -As for the poster, it is generic as fuck.

    sadly i snafu'd my ticket order and got 1 ga and 1 seat. i was on the floor, son chose the seat. was up in the seats with him for Tobacco and then when the seats around him were being claimed i relocated to the floor-high anxiety because we are Oregonians and I was being worried mom about leaving her offspring...
    I took him to Amoeba the next day, walked out with more than a cpl dozen cd's and we schooled each other in music and life on the rest of the trip. i have a new formed respect and appreciation for rap music, have been educated in Pink Floyd, my car speakers are blown, and I know what is going on inside my eldest teenage son's mind. PRICELESS!
    now how do I go about getting his poster signed for his 16th bday(?)
    and what the hell happened to Amoeba(?) i was talking to my son about the mtpl floor levels of music and we walked into the makings of a barnes n nobles lacking the starbucks... can anyone tell me if Virgin music store on sunset strip is becoming the same way?
