It should have leaked though. It's out in a couple weeks. I guess being that they are releasing it on their own label the chances of them keeping it locked down are greater. Amazon has song previews.

It did already kinda. There's a bad sounding leak that's missing a track or two.

I found one that doesn't sound too bad, although it is missing the first track. Production on this record is kind of all over the place. I think it might need some time to grow. Interesting though, and not what I was expecting to follow Wet From Birth.

sbessiso
07-26-2008, 03:42 PM
Kali, I need you to do me an enormous PAW-sized favor for me. Can you pretty please just have extra fun for me at this show?

Like, "whoa, this is one of Salah's All-Time Favorite Bands Since 10th Grade and Their Music Kinda Got Him Through Hard Times, Mostly Angsty-Teen Bullshit but Hard Times Nonetheless and He's Never Had a Chance to See Them Live" kind of extra fun.

Feel my spirit for anything "Danse Macabre", in particular the song "Your Retro Career Melted"

Kali27
07-26-2008, 03:49 PM
Oh honey...Favor granted :) I will be THE dancing queen at that show... sweat-dripping, hip-gyrating, girl in her own world... I'll try to remember to take a couple pics for you...

oh, and danse macabre is still my favorite as well

That's all I needed to hear! JSam is doing the same thing for me at the pre-Lollapalooza Black Keys show.

I thought about going to the SD show, but I'll be at The Love Festival(LA rave). I had fun seeing them last time they played Soma, but I wish there was somewhere else in SD for them to play.

Soma is pretty terrible but I've seen some good shows there. I always park it on the right side of the sound board, or just in front of it. I will also be covered in sweat. Do say hello.

it's going to get so damn hot in that bitch for the Faint guys. SOMA has a rep for not turning on the A/C, because the owner is a stingy bastard. I've been there many many times, at least the sound is great in there.

also increases water sales. the guys i used to work for had bathroom sinks that only had hot water so people couldn't get refreshed for free.

That is such bullshit. It goes to show how cheap some venue owners can be. Then something tragic happens, and now things may change. Unfortunately it has to happen that way. I've heard all kinds of things about Soma, so it isn't unsual to hear the aforementioned post.

Sushov23
07-27-2008, 07:59 PM
another thing that soma has is bitch ass security. They are terrible. At least water is only 2 bucks, but still that is fucked up. Supre talked about it on another thread, the owner shortchanges everything because he wants to have the money to pay the bands who would otherwise play HOB, or 4th and B.

can't fucking wait for this show, I have been listening to Danse Macabre a lot lately. The thing is after going to the Grove for the Gogol show, I'm a bit dissapointed that the place isn't as intimate as I would like it to be.

I've almost decided that I'm going to start going to most shows solo, and check to see if any of you guys are going to be there

so many of my friends are such damn flakes, that I've been burned on tickets a million times or had people cancel last second, so that I have to talk a random friend into going to a show that they have no idea what they're in for...

Don't forget to bring some moolah (if am not mistaken they accept credit cards though), Salah.

Shirts are $15. There's also nice designs in black and white. There's vinyls, "Whoa. The Faint watch", The Faint wallet etc.

Hi Amy! Go for it. You will have one of the best/fun times of your life in that show. True, you need to get familiarize with their songs (or else you will end up disappointed/with wtf look like those of DM LAME gawkers at Coachella).

10-26-2008, 04:07 PM
Holy fucking shit THE FAINT ROCKED!!!!

Excuse me, Why wasnt I warned about the keyboard/synth player?? I was in love pretty much the first song in. His dancing is out of this world.

the band sounded so tight and every single fucking song was amazing. Opening with "Agenda Suicide" and closing with "Glass Danse" was a great call. Even the new material which im not familiar with sounded excellent. This is a stellar live band and I can most definitley add them to my groupie/underwear list. The light show was sick and I love the lead singers lab coat/goggles. there were two opening bands, the first blew chunks and nearly killed me it was so boring. The second one was outrageously good, a drummer and some chubby guy with glasses that just kept playing things on a laptop and dancing his ass off. He may be my new idol but I cant remember their name.

But you know what, fuck those shirts!! fuck them to hell!! I bought a "Male XL" and I swear to God it fits and looks like a womens medium. It's so lame, my personal problem I know but still. I see it as disrespectful. I cannot even imagine what the small looks like.

I would so let that keyboard player put out a cigarette on me.

I'll put up pictures as soon as my friend uploads them
