Nine Inch Nails and The Jesus and Mary Chain at The Anthem

Nine Inch Nails performed twice at The Anthem this week on October 9 and 10, treating fans to nearly two hours of music each time. Both sets included well-known favorites and songs only true hardcore NIN fans would know. Trent Reznor and his band also treated fans to a few surprises, including “Home,” which had not been performed live since 2009, a guitar-filled version of “Closer” and an excellent cover of David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans.” Jesus and Mary Chain opened for NIN both evenings; their 12-song set opened with “Honey” and ended with the loud guitars of “Reverence.” Photos/write-up: Shantel Mitchell Breen
