So did anyone actually get NIN tickets?

I only got as far as the ticket page.
The website is still buggy as hell.

9:38, Versus started between 7:05 and 7:10. Believe me, you didn't miss much except a bored crowd.

Superchunk were awesome. I couldn't believe how much energy they had onstage. But Versus were good too.

I thought Versus were great. Looking forward to the new record. The new songs were amazing.
