The ten best concerts this week: November 5-9

1. THE FAINT @ OGDEN THEATRE | THUR, 11/8/12
When the Faint released Danse Macabre in 2001, it seemed like a nostalgic look back at the intersection of '80s new wave and post-punk. Now, after the waves of dance punk, electroclash and synth pop that followed in its wake over the past decade, the record seems positively prophetic. It doesn't hurt that the tunes themselves have held up remarkably well -- most of them, anyway. Perhaps that's why the band is reissuing the album in a deluxe edition and heading out to play it in its entirety for the first time ever. If you're not burnt out on the whole retro synths and drum machine beats topped with squalling post-punk guitar noise thing -- and you shouldn't be, as it's stuck around long enough to prove itself as a classic formula at this point -- this is a chance to catch one of the second-wave pioneers of the movement re-creating its finest moments live and on stage.
