The Faint @ T5, 12/7/2012
The Faint

Omaha dark dance veterans The Faint played all of their 2001 LP Danse Macabre at Terminal 5 on Friday (12/7), marking the half-way point for the band's East Coast leg of the US tour in support of its reissue. Opening the show were tourmates Trust and Icky Blossoms.

The Faint and Trust both dropped off their favorites of 2012 earlier this week, and odds are that Trust probably dipped into that best-of when they DJed at Glasslands directly after the show.

More pictures from Terminal 5 and the Faint set list are below.

This show was seriously amazing. The Faint still knows how to put on a great show!

In top 5 for 2012!

agreed. haven't seen them since 2006, and they were so so good. and terminal 5 ain't so bad when it's not overcrowded.

Boring cliched show, dated music. Bunch of Nebraska kids that in 2001 were playing at being 1986 London kids. No originality what so ever. On the bright side, I did get a date out of it with a hot girl. See what happens.

^ Never went to the show, never talked to a girl. Had been unable to achieve an erection the one night a 230lb co-worker agreed to go hone with him. Cries at night while furiously masterbating to Ricki Lake reruns wondering how things had gotten this bad. This is all he has. We're praying for you, ME.

great album, great live band. the crowd on the other hand had a serious frat/bro aspect full of rude drunk guys trying to impress their girlfriends who had never heard of the band before.

I thought the crowd was actually rather lovely and respectfully dancing the whole night. At least where I was jiving

I like The Faint a lot, but I thought this show wasn't that good. It seemed to have gone way downhill after the technical difficulty mishap after the first 4 or 5 songs.

Great show, I enjoyed the chance to hear them banter and goof around with the Microphones when the bass head blew. Great new stuff and great renditions of Danse Macabre. I've been listening to their 12" inch a lot since.
