MUSIC | Metric
Well, I gotta give Metric credit: they're slowly winning my skeptical heart. Apparently they've won a lot of other hearts, too, considering the gig sold out in 22 minutes... Openers Holy Fuck surely had no effect on those numbers. Here's hoping you can sneak your way in for a double shot of dancey Canadiana.
