The Faint

The Faint is a master of murky electronic feedback and dangerously catchy hooks that force listeners to automatically crank the volume. The Omaha group’s lyrical style was born in sync with the emo movement, but it swapped acoustic guitars and whiny lyrics for an intense, new-wave dance sound and lyrics that have examined erections and birth, and guys wearing makeup (in a punk-rock kind of way), among other weird tropes. The band has booked just five dates this summer, and one of those is at The Granada in Lawrence. Don’t miss it. The Faint has the power to make the masses throw down.
