This weekend I was lucky to catch Nine Inch Nails in concert.
The show was amazing as expected. He still has the energy and passion he had when I saw him in the early 90's. My personal favorites from the show were Reptile and Love is not Enough. He had me at those songs along with ending the night without an encore. I hate begging for an encore.
The opening acts were the impressive Autolux (the drummer was one of the best we had ever seen) and Queens of the Stone Age. I enjoyed both acts along with the music played before the show started. They played some old Devo, Gary Newman and one song that I adore...that I do not know the name of. I am afraid I will never identify it. The lyrics go like this..."And it feels so real...I can't help it".
Thats all I got.
If anyone can identify it please put me out of my misery.
On a final note I got to spend some time with my friend Christine (astheclevercrowflies) before the show. She looked fab as always and it was great catching up with her even if it was for a brief moment.
My concert going blitz will end this year on a fairly high note. It looks like I will see Bauhaus in NYC in November. I have the plane ticket and hopefully the hotel arrangements will be finalized tomorrow.
