2014 Travel Stats
I’m done with travel for the year and wanted to post my final stats (via TripIt):
Distance: 86,329 mi
Busy year for work and personal travel. I didn’t get out of the country this year due to my botched trip to Mexico but 2014 is sure to make up for that!
Nine Inch Nails at The Joint Las Vegas 11/16/13
I walked into the Joint on Saturday night expecting to be surprised - I had faith that we wouldn’t get a standard playlist two night in a row and I was right….
Nine Inch Nails
Las Vegas, NVl
All Time Low
Came Back Haunted
Copy of A
I Would for You
The Big Come Down
A Warm Place
The Hand That Feeds
Head Like a Hole
In This Twilight
While I’m Still Here
So we started with the funkier side of the set and ended rocking out. The major omissions from the regular set list was MOTP/Piggy but we got “Reptile” and I was really happy to get “Echoplex”. The band seemed really edgy that night and I mean that in a good way. Robin and Josh were especially inspired - really these photos don’t do them justice but I think you can just imagine.
(Robin FUCKING Finck is a BEAST!)
(Josh Eustus on SAX!!!)
The night turned especially emotional for me after Trent introduced the band. He told us that he was off his game tonight because of a friend who could not be at the show. I knew he was talking about Andrew (@amateurchemist) and what happened next was just really super cool. TR asked us to indulge him and the next thing you know, he was facetiming Andrew. The crowd started chanting “Andrew” - and I just kinda lost it. I know Andrew from the blogiverse - as a fellow NINnie, traveler and photographer, I just always felt a connection to him and while I am happy that he has been having these amazing experiences, I just wish they weren’t under these circumstances.
And then they played “In This Twilight”. This song will forever be for Andrew. (You can read the background as to why here.)
I don’t really know how to end this post, so yeah, #fuckcancer.
