Metric. Metric. Metric.

The one to watch....


South By Southwest 2006

Emily Haines is still secretly one of the most articulate, compelling performers in modern rock.” - UNCUT

This show is invite-only, please rsvp for guest list.

Friday, March 17 Stubb’s (11:00 p.m.)

"Equally brash, lovely and sorrowful, Metric's music is like an amplified Charlie Kaufman script -and it's every bit as disarming too." - Alternative Press

A few facts:

  • Metric began 2006 supporting The Rolling Stones at Madison Square Garden at Mick’s personal invitation
  • The remix of US radio hit ‘Monster Hospital’ by MSTRKRFT is currently doing the rounds in the UK’s biggest clubs
  • Sold over 50,000 records in Canada.
  • Singer Emily Haines sings on some of Broken Social Scene’s biggest tunes like ‘Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl’ and early material by fellow Canucks Stars.
  • Jimmy and Emily once lived in the same NYC apartment as Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Liars.
  • Album ‘Live it Out’ released in UK in June on Drowned in Sound.
  • UK tour in May including Mtv2 stage at The Great Escape festival in Brighton.

Hear why Drowned in Sound Recordings’ (Martha Wainwright, Kaiser Chiefs debut single etc…) new signing is causing such a stir in the US on their as-featured-on-the-frontpage-of MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/metricband and watch videos at http://www.ilovemetric.com
