With roots in the Toronto collective Broken Social Scene, Metric have been around since the late 1990s. Last September, they released their latest album Pagans In Vegas. Since then, they’ve been touring in Europe, the U.S. and Mexico.
Now, with spring in full swing, Metric are finally getting around to touring Canada. And on Monday March 28 they’ll be in town to play a show with the well-known Washington State based alt-rock band Death Cab For Cutie which is fronted by Ben Gibbard. The show’s billed as a co-headlining gig, and the recently formed duo Leisure Cruise (Leah Siegel and Dave Hodge) are also playing.
The show goes at Conexus Arts Centre, and the start time is listed as 6:45 p.m. on the CAC website. Here’s video of Metric performing the song “Black Sheep” off Pagans In Vegas
