The mind-blowing life-altering religious musical experience of nine inch nails, live at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria BC, December 5, 2008.

nine inch nails could very well have been the single most incredible performance I have ever seen in my life, and I’m trying not to sound hyperbolic (?) when I say type that.

My memory of the 1994 performance of Pink Floyd (nine inch nails is second only to Pink Floyd in my musical world) is teetering in its place atop my concert experiences, dangerously close to falling off the top spot after NIN.

This show was had most technically, aurally and visually tight and beautiful performance, equaled only by the passion of its musicians.

For a longtime fan who’s never seen them before, the mix of hits with old stuff — as well as some new instrumental awesomeness some less-passionate fans might consider obscure — made the show sound and feel amazing, but the phenomenal lighting and visual effects were unlike anything my brain could’ve ever dreamed up.
