Ticket Giveaway - Metric - Stage AE - 9.18.12 - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Metric will be making an appearance next Tuesday, 9.18 at Stage AE. They are touring behind their latest LP (one of my favorites this year) entitled Sythetica.  The new album was released this past June to very positive reviews from both the mainstream and internet press. The Toronto based band is lead by the most attractive female in indie rock today, Ms. Emily Haines. Her vocals and quiet confidence allows her to be the focal point of any show, mesmerizing a majority of the audience. We featured them here the last time when they played at Mr Smalls. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show courtesy of our friends at Stage AE. To enter just email us at with your name. 

From their press:

Haines first envisioned the word “Synthetica” as the name for a particularly resilient skin-job from Blade Runner, a female replicant who voices an inner monologue of all your human imperfections. “If you imagine a nightmarishly fake version of me as a pop star, that’s her,” she says. “And this record was about me saying, I’m going to give more to the music than ever, but there’s no way I’m going to turn into someone like that.” As she sings on the album’s hard-rocking title track, “We’re all the time confined to fit the mold / But I won’t ever let them make a loser of my soul.”

“Synthetica is about insomnia, fucking up, fashion, all the devices and gadgets attached to our brains, getting wasted, watching people die in other countries, watching people die in your own country, dancing your ass off, questioning the cops, poetic justice, standing up for yourself, sex, the apocalypse, doing some stupid shit and totally regretting it but then telling everyone it made you stronger, leaving town as a solution to unsolvable problems, owning your actions, and owning your time.”

Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $29 and can be found here. More information about the band can be found here:
