The Faint: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 14 2012

The first time you heard The Faint's album Danse Macabre, you probably were struck by how distinctive it was. This album was dance music for people who only listened to indie music — what a brilliant concept! Not to make you aging hipsters feel old, but it's been over a decade since Danse came out. So naturally, Saddle Creek just released a deluxe, remastered edition of the album, with bonus tracks, a DVD, and some fancy booklets. To mark this special occasion, the Omaha electro-punks are playing Danse Macabre in its entirety on every night of their current 26-date tour. If you haven't listened to the record in a while, check it out — there's not a bad track on there. The band has also promised to perform "new songs and some of our other favorites" at their upcoming gigs, so more recent converts will have something to dance to as well.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
