Pretty cool. I didn't even know The Faint were still making music. Glass Danse is still played in the clubs.

What's wrong with Terminal? And I think $25 is reasonable considered the big venue and LiveNation.

$25 feels like the lowest price ticket i have seen at term 5 in a while. they always have great bands with them as well. cool cool

@ jesse

the faint defected to their own label, which will probably be similar to what conor oberst has with team love. a sub-label of saddle-creek

I love the faint, but the lead singer is a huge douche.

I can't make it and have an extra ticket for tonight. Make me an offer... don't want it to go to waste.
