And what a machine it was! For over 90 or so minutes, fans were treated to a robust set composed of Metric favorites such as “Help I’m Alive”, “Gold Guns Girls”, “Dead Disco” and “Gimme Sympathy”.
Also part of the setlist were “Black Sheep” off the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World soundtrack. Of course the band sampled stuff from their last release, Synthetica. Of which received them their last Juno Awards nod.
All in all, it's really refreshing to see bands of this certain genre visit our territory. It shows that the music taste of the concert going crowd is as varied as those who were present in the Metric show - from celebs comfortably enjoying the event in their Native shoes, to indie music savants familiar with the band's discography, to the average joe simple longing for an alternative music experience. I guess it's all perfectly described by guitarist James Shaw during the after party where in he quips that the band doesn’t really care who you are, as long as you're in their show to have fun. Well said, very well said.
