    That promo is a month and a half out from the date. Drexel Univ. and Chestnut Cabaret are a half mile from each other. Would they really play two shows that close to each other? Maybe Drexel got scheduled later, so they then cancelled Chestnut and slotted in a date at Green Parrrot instead in the previous Chestnut date?

      I can't believe in Green Parrot in July as I think they played there in March : https://happinessinheresy.com/nine-inch-nails-concert/neptune-march-04-1990/ I know this is during the Mary Chain tour, and during the second Ritz show. In this case, the promo is 2 days before ! But maybe they cancelled in March and played in July.. definitely need more investigations. In fact, I need to discover how Green parrot had been indicated in July. This old list is really good so the guys had probably a proof I didn't discovered

      Todd, thanks a lot for this very clever info ! This date probably need more investigations ! I will check more carefully the newspapers just in case I missed something.

    Further, this guy has a list of concerts he attended, and he went to a lot of concerts at Chestnut Cabaret, as well as a lot of NIN shows: http://musictravel.free.fr/concerts/concerts90.htm He specifically went to NIN at Drexel and not Chestnut. So, Chestnut probably didn't happen.
