Agenda Suicide: The Faint @ The Fonda Theater, 11/19/12

“As I lay to die the things I think Did I waste my time? I think I did I worked for life” ~Agenda Suicide, The Faint Once upon a time, I had seen The Faint more than any other band. Long story short, it was the only band that my ex-boyfriend and I could meet […]

Ladytron < The Faint @ The Fillmore, 4/29/09

It was the first night of The Faint and Ladytron’s two night mini residency at The Fillmore. As co-headliners, each band would take a turn closing (imagine that!). Guess which night I picked? The Faint’s closing night, because I just like them like that. It was to be my first time seeing Ladytron. I’ve skipped […]

The Faint, Dr. Dooom, Natalie Portman's Shaved Head @ The Warfield, 11/8/08

Here I am, at Faint show #4 for the year. I missed seeing Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head a couple months ago at Bottom of the Hill, and the last issue of Spin rubbed that in my face. I think they’ve got a good thing going. They’re definitely much better than the openers for The Faint […]

The Faint, Glass Candy, Shy Child @ The Fillmore, 8/4/08

It’s night 1 of 3 this week for seeing The Faint. The Fillmore is teeming with in-the-know music junkies. Shy Child, a New York duo, is mid set on the stage as we make our way to our usual stage right spots. The vocalist, who sounds a lot like one of The Rapture vocalists, plays […]

BFD 2007 @ Shoreline Amphitheater, 6/9/07

Dear Live 105, My, how I look forward to BFD each year. It’s one day of seeing bands that make my heart go pitter-pat. This year was no exception. Most of my faves, as expected since I am a self-proclaimed hipster, were on the local lounge and festival stages. I stick around for some of […]
