NIN in Atlantic City, NJ (more by Zach Dilgard)

Got a few weeks to kill? Time to break out that new hard drive that you got over the holidays.

“The internet is full of surprises these days.
I was contacted by a mysterious, shadowy group of subversives who SOMEHOW managed to film a substantial amount (over 400 GB!) of raw, unedited HD footage from three separate complete shows of our Lights in the Sky tour. Security must have been lacking at these shows because the quality of the footage is excellent”. –Trent Reznor

And in the forum….

There is about 405gb of HD footage available. It was recorded with multiple consumer HDV cameras during three shows: Victoria 12.05.08, Portland 12.07.08, and Sacramento 12.12.08.

This is raw, unedited, un-color-corrected HD footage. It will be primarily of interest to advanced users, who may wish to attempt to edit it together into something. It could be really interesting to see what creative users can put together using this and other fan-recorded footage. These guys are off to a great start already.

…The footage is available as a free download via bitTorrent. If you don’t know what bitTorrent is, please go to this link and read every word of it before you ask anyone on the forums what to do with the torrent files. [NIN Forum]

The release of these torrents has PC World asking if NIN is the first “open source band”. If so, there’s more proof that open source is the way to go, because despite giving away their album Ghosts I-IV for free, it was Amazon’s best selling digital album of 2008.

In related news…

NIN’s other new album “The Slip” is still available as a free download.

NIN keyboared player Alessandro Cortini has left the band “to concentrate on his own projects”.

Marilyn Manson wants Dita Von Teese and Trent Reznor to testify in court.

Jim DeRogatis says the Trent-produced Saul Williams album Niggy Tardust was one of the best of 2008.

NIN are playing some shows in Australia in February. No other tour dates at this time.
