Metric in Victoria BC

Metric in Victoria BC

The Metric concert in Victoria BC tonight was a sad sound to bear to the 3/4 full arena. Emily Haines delivered the lyrics with enthusiasm but was let down by poor acoustics and poor balance on off the mixing board. The hour and a half set covered their hits and a few lesser popular songs. With a couple of the songs undergoing the Pink Floyd treatment of meandering musical extensions that didn’t do any favors to the overall concert.  Lastly the concerts visuals were a mix of epileptic educing strobing &  seedy club lighting that made the show unwatchable during some parts.

Audio: 4/10
Visual: 4/10
Band: 6/10
