The Faint bestow the Roxy with pure dance punk bliss

Photo via Mark Smith I was a little late to the party when it comes to The Faint. I had heard their studio works in passing and although I found them to be interesting, I had never felt compelled to absorb them into my system. Then at the end of a long festival day at […]
