CONTEST – The Faint @ The Sound Academy – December 11, 2012
The FaintWho: The Faint
What: American New Wave outfit who made Omaha, Nebraska an improbable launching pad for the dance-rock movement of the early ’00s; they helped teach the indie kids how to dance.
Why: Their pivotal Danse Macabre album is getting an ultra-fancy reissue on October 30, and to help mark the occasion The Faint are embarking on a Fall tour to perform the album in its entirety, as well as material from their other albums as well as new songs to preview the follow-up to 2008′s Fasciinatiion.
When: Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Where: The Sound Academy in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Toronto’s TRUST and Omaha’s Icky Blossoms will open.
How: Tickets for the show are $23.50 in advance and go on sale this Friday, August 24, at 10AM, but courtesy of LiveNation, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show to help you Beat The Box Office. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to Faint” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, August 23. You’ll know if you’ve got your tickets before they go on sale.
