I'm sorry, I have no idea which forum this should go in, move it accordingly.

This club here in Cleveland called the Phantasy was where Nine Inch Nails played their first concert ever, and they're closing down in September.

There's currently a rumor going around that the "special guest performer" will be Trent Reznor.

Now I live right down the street from here, I know Tim Skold and some of the members of KMFDM who got kicked out like En Esch and Gunter Shultz have played shows here. I might go. I figured this deserved a thread here since it's an upcoming live performance supposedly.

Not to say it couldn't happen, but with that date being fairly close to the beginning of the next tour cycle, I have my doubts. That said, it would be pretty cool if it did happen.

Off topic from the rumor, but it always makes me sad to see established music joints close down. The place I grew up seeing shows at had been in existence since around the time I was born, and a few years ago it was finally shuttered before being converted into a weird hybrid restaurant / bar / club sort of thing that sometimes has concerts - most of which are jam bands. Another venue in town used to be the place where HUGE bands would cut their teeth. I'm talking guys like Black Sabbath, etc. Before it finally shut down, it was a place where high school bands could go play on stage in front of their friends and would host the occasional professional show (Superjoint Ritual, for example).

But times change, and no venue lasts forever. RIP Phantasy.

They're trying to shut down the Showbox in Seattle for some 436 unit apt building monstrosity. Gross. Judge gave them a temp. reprieve while the case gets examined more closely.

Just an FYI in case you want to go, and don't know yet... tickets for the final show at Phantasy are already on sale.

Damn, that's really sad. That's a good venue.

We've had our fair share of great venues close their doors here in Vancouver in the last little while.
They tried closing down a historical movie theatre here that's been a Vancouver staple since the 30s recently to build condos because the rental lease was coming to an end and the owner wanted to sell the building, so the manager said Fuck that noise and took to indegogo to fund keeping the building afloat. They needed to raise a ton of money to try and buy the building. After a very long and tedious campaign they were able to get the 7 million dollars needed to buy the building through the general public, the city of Vancouver, private investors and banks. Even actor Ryan Reyhnolds chipped in and made a donation to save the theatre. It's a really great theatre. It gives the city character.

It saddens me when small venues try and get shut down and town down. The world needs more entertainment, not less.

so is there a legit rumor going around, or just some speculation/hope that it’s Trent? Would be awesome but if it spreads and NIN fans crowd the place it would kind of suck for the bands and the fans of the place that kind of deserve their own time there.

Reason on I ask is it just links an article with a mention of mystery guest and nothing else. Have fun either way!

The phantasy is about 10-15 min from me, however I doubt that it will actually be Trent as the mystery guest. I found the site selling tickets and it says that the mystery guest will be revealed before the actual date. I don't have my hopes up but would be cool

I kinda wish I were local for this flea market just to see what vintage NIN stuff they have. From the pic, you can see two versions of a TPD shirt, a broken tank top, Manson/MBM/Prick posters from nothing records, & a huge stack of TDS posters. If anyone's local, please stop by and take a bunch of pictures!

More like: if anyone's local please buy me one of those TPD t-shirts!! But yeah, I'd be curious to see everything they have.

I just came back from that actually. I only bought a Downward Spiral poster for $10 but they have tons of rare old shirts and posters going for $100+ dollars. The guy selling them said it was all going online after 5 today, and I told him to specifically tell this website about it because I know people here will want and take care of that shit.

Edit: I can go buy something if somebody has a quick request before 5 PM and is willing to pay me for it, I don't exactly have hundreds of dollars to drop on prototype 1980's Nine Inch Nails merch. They have pre-Pretty Hate Machine T shirts for $100 a pop.

Where is it going up online? eBay? Hopefully the guy let's us know...

I would assume Amazon or EBay, I'll keep track of it and let you all know where to find this stuff.

If I had the money, I would have made some purchases on behalf of all of you who couldn't make it out, but unfortunately I'm not rolling in the dough.

Get some pictures of the rarer stuff like those early shirts you mentioned. I'd definitely be interested to get some of that stuff before it hits eBay.

Unfortunately it ended at 5 PM today (it's almost 10 here now), there's nothing I can do now. If I had known before going that people wanted pictures I would have taken some.

Sigh.

Honestly, I'm not all that interested in buying more t-shirts - I just want to see if there's any merch or press materials I haven't seen previously.

I haven't heard anything yet, you could always try posting a comment on Phantasy Nightclub's Facebook page or the event page for this.

Items of note: a TDS thermal with moths, a backwards "n" in grey (which I would have worn the fuck out of back in the day), & a NIN denim vest?! There are some detailed images in the FB discussion (https://www.facebook.com/events/2153590884881369/) page (sadly, there isn't one of the vest).

At this point it looks like the nin stuff, that doesn't sell is going back into storage for the moment, no plans to sell it online, as of yet. As for all the other stuff, if it is not sold, other than the swag, pretty much everything is going to the liquidators. And this may, I repeat may, be the last weekend for the sale, as the club sale is pending and we are waiting for the close. Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm just trying to help here, Thank you!

If they're having another sale I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to go. If I do by some chance, I'll try to take some pictures and post them here. Don't exactly count on me for it though.

Hi. It looks like the sale continues tomorrow and next Sunday. There is a post on their Facebook, but I couldn't post a link because, idk, I'm internet stoopid.

I went down there last Sunday. Here is a bit more info if anyone is interested. The guy listed on the sale ad, Marky Ray, that's who owns the NIN items. According to him, and things I snooped online, he was there, back in the day, when NIN was starting out. Also was a roadie/tech etc. during the tour in 1990. It seems to me, the price tags are so high because these items are important to him. He is a collector, plus I believe these are items he owned and wore during the time, as all are XL and clearly worn not NOS. I did not look at every item closely though.

The denim vest 150$. Light blue NIN logo stitching on the back. He said, "This is a one of a kind prototype item. We would design some merch and show it to Trent and he would say no. He did that a lot, NO".

I thought that was funny. A lot of the items are like this. Prototypes. I believe most of it is, but like I said, I didn't look at it all. I asked to look at items I didn't recognize, he told me prototypes. You can't really take pictures because it's super dark in there. I tried to snap a few, but felt like a weirdo fangirl, plus the lightening, so I have nothing worthwhile.

In my NIN fangirl collector excitement I forgot to ask...WHO'S THE MYSTERY GUEST!

I'm guessing Trent was not a surprise guest at the last show?

Also, it appears that the Phantasy has had at least a short reprieve from being sold:
