The Faint's show at Liberty Hall tonight is also doubling as a "coming-out" party for the new version of the Lawrence.com website, so a large contingent of hipsters is expected, if only to voice their continuing displeasure with the site.
Here's the scoop from that very website: "Synth-core hipsters The Faint may be the best reminder in recent years that the '80s never really died. The Omaha band's most recent full-length "Fasciinatiion" is full of the same robotic jerkiness and Orwellian techno that characterized past efforts like "Danse Macabre."
If you go and find yourself dancing with a new lady or gentleman, try this line: "This Orwellian techno is hot!"... at which point they might recognize you as a fellow reader of Lawrence.com and you can bond over the shittiness of the new site before going home and making out to Coner Oberst and Cursive.
Chip: "The band has misspelled 'fascination,' in their album title, adding two extra 'i's.' I believe that this is deliberate, and probably artsy."
