This was sent to me by an anonymous source. Whoever you are, thank you! This is a raw soundboard from the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas performance. For the longest time, the NIN archive only had the webcast rip that was horribly compressed. Then, a few months ago, I was able to get Coluzzi’s Schoeps audience source. Now, this raw soundboard. The quality is amazing for this heavy hitting set. There will be no download available for this show and will only be traded out for other soundboards for the archive. If you would like to trade, email me here.

I’ve wanted to get this show for a long time since I first heard that there was an audience recording from this show. The webcast sounds good, but is very compressed. This audience recording is exceptional! Coluzzi has also made some other great tapes (see Fresno 03/2005 and Oakland 2005) so it’s nice to add this one to the archive. Thanks to all parties getting this one out there, you know who you are.

Soundboard audio ripped from the webcast from KROQ. Unfortunately it is not a lossless quality rip because it is not possible. But it's good quality.
