radiohead + nin + lollapalooza (scam)

ok, so it’s not official yet but greg kot (chicago tribune) broke the news awhile ago that this is the case..

the event is august 1-3 and tickets are going to run $200/$300 (or more depending on when you buy them -check out the brilliant/evil ticket fare scheme they’ve come up with.. basically they will keep raising the ticket price indefinitely – or rather until they reach the limits of what people will pay – genius but still evil) + airfare + 3 nights hotel in dt chicago

if you’re not up for it – nin will be playing in minneapolis august 2nd (the night before they play lollapalooza)

download 36 nin tracks for $5

ok, new nin album and you can download all 36 tracks for $5

Nine Inch Nails presents Ghosts I – IV, a brand new 36 track instrumental collection available right now. Almost two hours of new music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I – IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.
Trent Reznor explains, “I’ve been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn’t have made sense until this point”..”I’m very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts.”-nin.com
