First of all I have to say wow. I had only heard the name of this band until last night, when my buddy called me with the offer to go see these boys from Omaha. I knew it was going to be interesting when I saw their lead singer walk onto the stage in a white lab coat and mad scientist goggles, but the real surprise came when they began to belt. The only way that I can really explain this music and to give the sound justice is this: if an alien and heavy metal artists had their way with one another this would be the result. They brought the house down at The Republic last night and I think I can say for everyone in the show that the next time The Faint is in town no one will be missing that show.
