The Faint

Event Reviews

Two similar and familiar bands collided as The Faint and Ladytron shared a co-headlining bill that included a pair of sold-out stops in New York City. With more black attire and keyboards than one could count, the two acts offered career-spanning setlists filled with their distinctive synth-pop, post-punk and new-wave sounds. Kiran Aditham witnessed night two of the dark, dancefloor delights for himself.
