Upcoming Concerts I’m Excited to See and Why Series: The Faint at First Avenue

The Faint, December 13, First Avenue

For those unfamiliar with Omaha’s electro-rock hybrid group The Faint and their third album, 2001’s Danse Macabre, you should probably just stop right now and listen to this.

The Faint have always been adept at blending dance and rock together, especially with their live show (I’ve seen them three times, which isn’t enough).

If you are tracking with me, what if I told you The Faint were going to combine those two elements by performing their crowning pinnacle of an album in its entirety at First Ave in December? Yeah.

And Saddle Creek is re-releasing the album on Oct. 30, to boot (pre-orders here). So excited.

Oh, and Trust is opening the First Ave gig! And Icky Blossoms!

Stream The Faint’s “Take Me To The Hospital” here:
