Presented by AEG Live / The Messina Group, dance punk legends THE FAINT will be performing their classic album Danse Macabre in full TOMORROW NIGHT (11/30) at The Cannery Ballroom. If that’s not exciting enough news by itself, No Country and AEG/TMG are partnering up to give away two free pairs of tickets (details below)! Congrats to our ticket winners: Amanda Taylor and Robert Andrews!
Dance music is all the rage these days, but The Faint were fusing dance music with punk and indie rock before it was “cool.” 10 year record release anniversary tours have become all the rage lately as well (we really loved David’s Bazan’s Control tour last week) and though The Faint missed that mark by a year, they’re on the road in support of Saddle Creek’s recent remastering and rerelease (in a deluxe edition which includes bonus tracks) of their 2001 breakthrough record Danse Macabre. It’s been a few years since The Faint have been particularly active (its members have been performing and DJing sporadically under the name Depressed Buttons for the past few years) and they, along with the Saddle Creek scene at large, have fallen off of the radar a bit. Even if you haven’t given the band a second thought in half a decade though, watch the video below and tell me it doesn’t take you on an immediate nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Not only in this show a rare chance to see an amazing band that seldom plays out anymore, but a chance to hear what is arguably their greatest album performed in full (and, of course, a lot of other material- Danse Macabre is only 35 minutes long after all!). Their live show is an immersive, visual spectacle and their performance style is aggressive, energetic, and amazingly raw and intimate while maintaining mind-blowing precision. Get nostalgic and get ready to dance, because a show this fun is too fantastic to miss!

Opening the show is Trust. Touring in support of his recently released debut TRST, the Canadian electronic artist plays a dreamy, textured brand of vocal-driven old school electronic dance music (you won’t hear any dubstep here). He’s incredibly talented and a lot of fun, letting his embellished, over the top dance music tendencies run wild for huge, party-ready jams.
The Faint and Trust perform tomorrow night (11/30) at The Cannery Ballroom. The show starts at 8PM (doors at 7PM) and tickets are still available here.
