When the Faint's 2001 watershed LP Danse Macabre vaulted into the collective subconscious of electro-loving indie rockers, it was a weird time to pledge your allegiance. Everything coming out of Omaha, Nebraska—meaning every release from Saddle Creek Records—was being heralded with golden accolades before anyone even had a chance to hear it. The Faint were one of those bands whose pre-buzz lived up to the hype, fusing the finicky malaise of Todd Fink's wanna-be Robert Smith warble with danceable punk rock that would quietly influence (or at least boost the popularity of) a wave of early '00s bands. To celebrate the Saddle Creek release of the deluxe version of Danse Macabre, the band is playing the album in its entirety live for the first time. Your best Ian Curtis moves are strongly encouraged. RYAN J. PRADO
