The Faint practice

Posted yesterday on The Faint's Facebook page, with the cutline "First practice in too long!!!"

by Tim McMahan,

Todd Fink confirmed what everyone saw on the band’s Facebook page yesterday: The Faint are indeed gearing up to begin practicing again. Fink said it was too early to say what will come of it. I guess we should all just keep our fingers crossed. So who’s in the band this time? Based on interviews with Todd and Jacob Thiele last year, I’d be surprised if Joel Petersen was involved. We’ll have to wait and see.

If the news has put you in a dancing mood and you can’t wait to see Todd, Clark and Jacob again, head down to Lincoln tomorrow night for Depressed Buttons at The Bourbon Theater’s Rye Room with DJ Blac, Bad Speler and Cake Eater (a Good Speakers production). It’s the next best thing to seeing The Faint. $10, 9 p.m. More info here.

Tonight The English Beat returns yet again to Omaha, this time to The Waiting Room with The Bishops. 8 p.m., $20.

Also tonight, another installment of The Record Club at the Shop at Saddle Creek. Tonight’s listening party features Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The needle drops at 7 p.m., with discussion to follow. More info here.
