Voodoo Review: NIN Gets Glitchy

Much of what I thought about Nine Inch Nails' Voodoo set is online at Spin.com, but while the show was almost generous and open-hearted by NIN standards, it still had an impressive air of claustrophobia. The overhead lights dropped to lower the ceiling onstage to such a point that the band often seemed boxed in, and Trent Reznor seemed similarly constrained as he was zipped to the top of his leather jacket, then wrapped around the throat with a scarf.

Voodoo Preview: A New Voodoo?

In recent years, Voodoo has at times felt like the festival wants to be something for everybody. This year’s lineup covers less ground. Headliners Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails and The Cure have the broad appeal of classic rock (which is what they are in 2013), and Voodoo remains committed to a wide swath of New Orleans music, including Dr. John, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Glen David Andrews, Coyotes, The Revivalists, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, G-Eazy, and Unicorn Fukr.
