NIN/JA
Jane's set rocked. Great sound, lighting and energy. NIN was extremely sub-par. I think this is the last performance I'll watch while Trent 'phones it in.'

Current Mood: awake awake
Current Music: Three Days - Jane's Addiction

/agree

I saw nin two or three years ago at Cochella and I had the same experience. Meh. But I'm glad to hear the band I would have gone to the concert for was good.

Re: /agree

I thought they were as on as the last time I saw them: at the first Lollapalooza in '91. Damn but that makes me sound old. ;-)

How weird it is that all sorts of people I *didnt* run into were there also. Wish I would have seen you.

I think everytime I've seen NIN - its been kinda sub-par...oh except for in '96 when they came to town with David Bowie, who of course rocked the show!

I think '96 was the last NiN show I saw live, so my scale is a bit off I suppose. :-) We were over in the west side back reserved seating. It ended up being the same price as lawn, so we figured 'yay, free chair.'

Free chairs are good! My daughter and I were given - some up front passes during JA. It was better than sitting on my blanket on the lawn.

Yeah, I havent seen NIN since '96 either. I think Trent was so much better back then, but you gotta remember that they were all 20 years old when we went to see them back then.

If we think we are getting old (I was at the first Lollapalooza also) Imagine how they feel. Some people just cant keep up as well as others :)
