THE FAINT | The Observatory, Santa Ana, Ca
Photos and words by Sam Saturday
You could practically feel the desert in the air as The Faint and White Arrows teamed up to play the Observatory between their Coachella dates. In the process, White Arrows psyched up the crowd with cool jams, mostly from their full length Dry Land Is Not A Myth. Nebraskans The Faint turned around the cool vibe set by their opener with some glitchy throbbing rhythms. Their frenetic stage presence matched the energy of their songs, including favorites “Desperate Guys”, “The Geeks Were Right”, and “Agenda Suicide” and some brand new tracks. The Faint wrapped up the night with “Paranoiattack”, the crowd perfectly poised to chant the chorus in unison.
