Fronted by the mercurial Emily Haines, “still secretly one of the most articulate, compelling performers in modern rock,” (Uncut) Metric’s intense, always evolving fusion of psychedelia, disco, and electro-rock has made them one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the fertile Toronto music scene that grew up around the collective Broken Social Scene (to which Haines and Metric co-founder James Shaw belong). Representing Brooklyn on this triple bill of terrifying beauty are the “sublime…absolutely devastating” (Q Magazine) soul-punk diva Joan As Police Woman and transcendent singer/guitarist on the rise Holly Miranda.
