Sounds like a great venue.  I'm bummed they haven't sold out such a small club, but what can you do?

I've been checking any details on an opener yet, but nothing is confirmed yet.  I'd be very OK with no opener, and a marathon SFA set.

oh yeah and the restrooms there are really really nice. or at least the ladies rooms are - with attendant and all. but yeah its a good venue. if i hear anything about an opener will pass on the news. and maybe ill meet you at the show :) i recall their beers being a bit more pricey than most of the LES venues, but its meat-packing district. and their sound is usually really great, although i did see dean & britta have the worst sound problems ever (granted they were an opener, so hoping thats not the case - and the main band sounded great).

NIN is playing its last NYC show on wednesday at T5, but getting a ticket is kinda tough.

also a fan club presale here: http://royksopptickets.sandbag.uk.com/Store/DisplayItems.html

had to use IE, the button weren't working in firefox for me.  1 ticket = $44.50 with shipping (from UK), so probably not much cheaper than through TM.

eff that - $37.75 for one ticket via TM.  now to decide if i wanna be pathetic and trek up to NYC for this... or just be pathetic and stay home.  decisions, decisions.

I bought them through a presale (not sure if it was the same one - it was from astralwerks - but was def through sandbag.uk) and my ticket wasnt anywhere near $44. Prob the same amount that ticketmaster had it.

according to his status updates, ixkpd-bk got there 30 hours early and was still 15th in line.  slept on the sidewalk through a thunderstorm.  got a ticket, for face.  apparently it was sorts of amazing, " One of the best shows I've been to in my life" type of stuff.

O. M. F. G...  setlist from tonight's NIN show at webster hall:

1. "Mr. Self Destruct"
2. "Piggy"
3. "Heresy"
4. "March of the Pigs"
5. "Closer"
6. "Ruiner"
7. "The Becoming"
8. "I Do Not Want This"
9. "Big Man with a Gun"
10. "A Warm Place"
11. "Eraser"
12. "Reptile"
13. "The Downward Spiral"
14. "Hurt"
15. 1,000,000
16. Terrible Lie
17. Metal
18. Lights In the Sky
19. Burn
20. Gave Up
21. Suck
22. Physical
23. The Hand That Feeds
24. Head Like A Hole

yes, they played "the downward spiral" in order and in its entirety.  supposedly the first and only time trent has and ever will ever do this.  i pray this is misinformation, 'cause i'd LOVE for the band to do this again at T5 (although PHM would be an acceptable alternative).

review from joe saying that the show "meh", too crowded, and he would have preferred seeing some experimental band we've never heard of at the RnR hotel in 3... 2...  ;)

There, fixed that for you. :)

You could've also taken this approach:

review from joe saying that the show "meh", too crowded, and he would have preferred seeing some flavor-of-the-month band whose record label just wrote a fat check to Pitchforkmedia, Inc. for a glowing review and a "best new music" rating  at the RnR hotel in 3... 2...



P.S. That looks absurd. Too bad it was wasted on Joe.

I'll be giving flacs of the Bowery show a spin in less than five minutes. Talk about instant gratification. Webster will probably surface today.
