For those of you who dig your indie rock steeped in new wave influences may want to start polishing up your dancing shoes. Omaha's The Faint are going to party like it's 2003 tonight at the Cannery Ballroom. Opening the show will be what's probably the most appropriate match-up Nashville has to offer right now, The Protomen. It probably won't be as amazing as the time The Faint played the Red Rose, but definitely better than seeing My Epiphany open for them at Exit/In.
If you're still itching to shake off a case of the Mondays after the show (or just didn't have the cash to get in downstairs), the Mercy Lounge presents "Faint off 8th," an official after party where folks like Nite Nite, Justin Kase, Hands Off Sam, DJ Burgers and Paris, Ontario will extend the dance party a little further into the evening.
The action downstairs starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $22. Upstairs starts at 10 p.m. for free.
