METRIC – Emily Haines Fucking Amazing Show

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

IMG_9632Emily Haines and her band Metric lived up to everyone’s expectations and then some last night. Initially walking up to La Zona Rosa and seeing the line I was rather surprised and happy to learn the show was soldout.  Even with Cage the Elephant down the street and Del the Funky Homosapien and the Whigs in town, there was still a decent crowd of ticket seekers trying to get in.  Throughout their hour and a half set full of favorites; Poster of a Girl, Help I’m Alive, Monster Hospital, Dead Disco, and encoring with an acoustic Combat Baby, Emily continued to bring an amazing energy to her brand of Indie Rock.  Overall a wonderful show and I’m now completely smitten with Emily.  My camera sucks so I’ve stolen these vids off youtube, credit to the uploaders. Go ahead and grab an acoustic Help I’m Alive
