Seconded on the NIN show (Hollywood Bowl). Soundgarden were terrific. Kim Thayil looked a bit like he was mailing it in, but that's probably the way he always looks. Thought Chris Cornell nailed it. And they do have a lot of good songs.
But ya, it was all about NIN. My fourth time seeing Trent and it was the best. That's really saying something since the previous three times were excellent. Copy of A opened and pulled me right in. From there it was a barrage of light and noise. Great, great show.

Agree sonny on Copy of A. I was pulled right in on that song and thought the first 5 songs were incredible (I knew almost all of them). He then went in some different, inventive hard edged ways and then came back to close the show with 3 or 4 of his best known tunes. It was just incredible.

Oh and Reznor looked absolutely exhausted at the end. He noted it was a year-long tour that ended Saturday night and thanked the crowd and all his fans but he looked like he was done. I can understand with the impressive amount of energy and effort he puts into his shows.

Damn Swans were amazing tonight. Still don't have much use for the Roxy. But Gira and band were just incredible.
