Nine Inch Nails

…the brazenness that once defined Jane’s Addiction has leveled off into something rigid and dutiful. (This was never more obvious than on “Jane Says,” a signature ballad, and a diffuse and lackluster final encore.) Mr. Farrell sang in his piercing, theatrical whine, and as the alternative-rock front man most often pegged as Dionysian, he fulfilled a given role, shimmying and writhing, sometimes with a bottle of wine. “Still partying!” he crowed at one point. These days his freak show is a happy place.

By contrast Nine Inch Nails, which played a potent preceding set, delved into the colder aspects of freakishness. This too was true to form: Trent Reznor, the group’s mastermind, has always been a brooder. But he sends his energies outward in performance: most of his songs reached eruptive fervor, even if they began in shadowy quietude. Mr. Reznor’s lean backing band was equally engaged by thrashing post-punk riffs and thudding electronics, and his vocals created a calculated impression of soul baring at every degree of intensity. [NY Times]

Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction played two NYC-area shows togehter. They were Saturday, June 6th at PNC Bank Arts Center, and Sunday, June 7th at Jones Beach Theater. The photographs and review are both from Jones Beach. The co-headlining tour, that included a stop at Sasquatch, wraps up this weekend on June 12th in Charlotte, NC. NiN go on to play Bonnaroo on June 13th, while Jane’s Addiction has shows June 13th and 14th in Portsmouth, VA, and Wallingford, CT, respectively. Both bands will travel abroad to Europe and elsewhere for the rest of the summer. Of course, Jane’s Addiction will return in time for Lollapalooza on August 7th.

Street Sweeper Social Club (a band with Tom Morello and Boots Riley) opened both shows. More pictures and all setlists below…
