"It began sort of like a Gothic tale. The dark stage had been shrouded in smoke well before Nine Inch Nails' start time, and when the show did start up, it was cloaked in dark gloom well beneath the light-enhanced theatrics. But NIN in 2013 are anything but medieval or ancient in their...

With those off-kilter features and that bold, confident carriage, she might have stepped out of Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon: Karen Black was one of the most striking and strange character actresses of the 1970s, though she became relegated to lesser roles—and, sometimes, uncharitable...
