Did you catch the latest NIN tour? I swear that album was written with the intention of being the soundtrack to Trent's concept for the visual experience. Those songs were living and breathing organisms when he played them live.

Please add Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks to my list. It didn't really sink in after the first few listens. But, going back to it after a couple weeks, I realize it's pretty fucking incredible. That's the way pretty much every NIN album after The Downward Spiral has been for me: I don't really like it at first, but after some time passes I find myself loving it.

All 3 members of Sleater-Kinney joined Pearl Jam on stage last night in Portland, playing together for the first time in 6 years. I know it's a long shot, but an official reunion at Sasquatch doesn't seem entirely unrealistic.
Wasn't sure where to put this. It's a pretty good article about the NIN Tension tour. After reading that Trent dumped a lot of money on this thing, I almost feel bad about bitching about the $45 t shirt prices. I guess he has to make money somewhere.

Is stand corrected. A quick perusal of the Saquatch! Wiki page shows also The Head and the Heart (2011-2012), Fleet Foxes (2008-2009), and Neko Case three years in a row (2006-8). So while repeat performances are very rare, they do seem to happen at a rate of about one every year.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there has ever been an artist that performed two years in a row. I think Ben Gibbard might have been there two years in a row, but one was with The Postal Service and the other with Death Cab, so it doesn't really count. Repeat bookings are fairly common, but never two years in a row that I can think of. Bottom line: I'm not really putting my money on anyone from last year being there again next year.
