six months after being introduced and subsequently falling in love with Metric
and after two months of eager anticipation since the announcements of their european tour dates, i had the pleasure of finally attending my first ever Metric
show on november 30th at the 'club' of 'la laiterie' in strasbourg, france.
i'd seen a handful of live videos and had heard much about what to expect, performancewise, from Emily Haines
and the guys, and had rather high expectations. - and they were all more than fulfilled.
the 90 minute show that metric played at the laterie in strasbourg, france, was easily the greatest concert i attended this year, and i attended more than a handful of incredible concerts this year, among many others fantastic shows by Maximo Park
, Bright Eyes
and the Arcade Fire
. i'm even inclined to call it the best concert i ever had the pleasure of attending so far.
i've never seen a performance like that of emily haines, ever. …
