shame it wont be their live debut now.
would prefer they get some experience before sleeping with...err...listening to them
It's good they'll have a warm up show. It'll be just as good if not better for Coachella
Fox in Pomona warm up show, April 10th. I need tickets for my birthday, may possibly suck dick. Oh god. Trent Reznor boner. I'm shaking right now.
Expecting the Pomona show to sell out instantly, so I'll be purchasing tickets for Monterey tomorrow, just in case I don't get tix for Pomona, if I do...well then double Renzor boner.
Very excited to catch one of these shows. Not excited about being overcharged on a deposit that should have never been charged and now I can't buy tickets to Monterey... >:|
just grabbed a ticket for the sf show.

From the AMA:
"Our intention is for an open camera policy, but we haven't dived into specifics with the venues yet, so I don't want to make any guarantees. In the case of this show, I think if you are able to see it in person you should go in blind. It's going to be a difficult thing to convey on video (although we'll try our best for the Coachella live stream). Also, regarding the comparison to NIN's Lights in the Sky: The HTDA show will be a very visual experience, and all of the creative team from Lights in the Sky is working on this. BUT, please do not go in expecting Lights in the Sky, because this is a very very different presentation from NIN. This is going to be more of a statement, more of an audio/visual installation than a rock concert. Probably a lot of people aren't going to "get" it, but hopefully they'll walk away saying "I'm not sure what the hell I just watched, but it was pretty cool."

I can't really get into the album but I'm definitely going to wander over and check it out.
Sounds incredible.[Rob] Thanks. The visual direction of this album came about first from the concept of the record. Trying to express the anxiety of information overload, the end of mankind as both terrifying and transformative, apocalypse and evolution, etc. I was inspired by the way Trent and Atticus set up rules for themselves around the way they record music for each project, and the analog methods they were experimenting with for this record that tied into its themes. So I started looking for a visual analogy for that, and also a visual analogy for information overloading the pipeline it's being sent through - of signals unable to display coherently. It led me down the road of experimenting with analog cables and old CRT monitors and VHS decks. The result was a set of rules I came up with for creating the visuals. As much of a pain in the ass the process is sometimes, it's strangely freeing to work within constraints. Not only does it force a rigid visual consistency, it takes Photoshop out of the equation entirely (the CRT texture makes the images largely uneditable in post, besides color corrections). Sometimes there's something extremely daunting about a blank document in Photoshop, because you can go absolutely ANYWHERE with it. Setting up some limitations has proved really useful.
