It was a night meant for shakin' your groove thang; too bad there was no room.The Faint
played to a packedWarehouse Live
last night delivering a nice collection of their most danceable numbers from all over its catalogue. However, the overstuffed quarters made it near impossible to walk around, let alone dance without spilling someone's drink. If a pocket of space opened on the main floor, it was soon filled with those that couldn't resist theinfectious dance tunes

It was hard to ignore The Faint's shameless borrowing of Depeche Mode and New Order's style, but it got a little easier when the speakers are blaring songs like "Worked up So Sexual" and "Take Me to the Hospital." Tunes like those made spilling beer on the meanest looking girl in the place or accidentally grinding with some strange stalker dude a little less traumatic.
The Faint closed out the night with a two song encore leaving audiences screaming for more and looking for another venue where they could get their dance on. - Dusti Rhodes
