Nine Inch Nails’ “Hesitation Marks” record release day events in Los Angeles

Nine Inch Nails’ eighth studio album Hesitation Marks is a really big deal.  It is (with all respects to Josh Homme and company) the most anticipated album release in rock, electronic (and quite possibly dance) music this year.  The Tension 2013 tour hasn’t even begun and high fidelity recordings of Hesitation Marks haven’t even been heard, and it still feels like Nine Inch Nails is the biggest thing to happen in music this year (you can thank their towering shadow effects festival stage show for that as well).  September 3rd is fast approaching and the Nine Inch Nails machine is in full gear.  Starting on Monday, scattered throughout Los Angeles will be record release events where you can buy Hesitation Marks, get some free food, and hopefully draw the winning raffle number to get you this year’s most ridiculously sought after ticket.
