Definitive Nine Inch Nails


AFTER putting the popular industrial band on hiatus a few years back, Trent Reznor is back in the studio and plans to hit the road in North America with an updated version of Nine Inch Nails that kicks off its tour in St. Paul, Minn., on Sept. 28 and finishes up in Calgary on Nov. 25. Curiously, there is no Winnipeg date (yet). Hesitation Marks is set for release on Sept. 3, with the first single, Came Back Haunted, already streaming online.

Along with releasing some previously hard-to-find documentaries and videos over the last month, Reznor is helping push the group back into the spotlight by uploading every single NIN released and making them available to stream on-demand through Soundcloud. It's a savvy move that will draw in new fans, many who weren't even born during the band's initial run, while rekindling the love of the group's harsh drum beats, metallic guitars and Reznor's doom-and-gloom narratives. The group will also make a triumphant return to Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer.

How to Clean Everything 20th Anniversary Edition


ONE of the definitive punk albums of the '90s (even if the group that recorded it seems embarrassed by it now that the members are in their 40s), local political thrashers Propagandhi's How to Clean Everything is being re-released on Aug. 20 by Fat Wreck Chords, the influential band's original label. Packaged up with a remastered version of the classic album, three songs cut from the original by label boss Fat Mike, a rare four-song demo and an exclusive Tab book for both the bass and guitar parts, How to Clean Everything 20th Anniversary Edition should appeal to a broad group of diehard fans and young punk rockers who may only know the band's later more progressive, thrash-metal-influenced sound.

TEDx Manitoba Highlights


THE third TEDx Manitoba event was held last week and if you weren't one of the lucky Manitobans able to attend, this short highlight reel should pique your interest about what was talked about during the thought-provoking sessions. The theme this year was play, and included speakers such as director Sean Garrity (Solo Cinema: Fiction That is Real), activist Jodie Layne (Flipping the Script: Pleasure and Prevention) and creative technologist Bradley Shende (The Joy of Clicking). Watch for all the TEDx talks to be uploaded online.
