Set against the illuminated backdrop of the many pallets of Chrome Satan at the Hilliard's Beer Taproom, The Faint, during their performance, looked like dance-punk dictators, rulers of some Mad Max dystopia in which beer's more valuable than gold. In case you missed it, or in case you just wanted to view The Faint in all their glory yet again, we've brought a wealth of live video footage from their set here to you today. The synth-symphony and Dapose's bass strumming kept the crowd in Hillard's under control (for the most part) and, later that night, they went on to play at The Neptune, giving all attending another excellent performance.
