come on baby, play me something

Saw Metric at Upstate Concert Hall tonight. Had a lot of fun, nice high-energy show with a crowd that largely was into it [*] and with the vocals mixed to be audible. (Their opening act, whose name I did not catch and who only got the gig yesterday, could have done better in this regard. They were otherwise a decent match and perfectly enjoyable.)

I admit I was a little sad that my two favorite songs, "Satellite Mind" (note: clearly-audible "fuck" in chorus) and "Blindness" didn't make it, though not surprised, since they're from the last album. (I have no idea what their actual singles were because I discovered them thanks to Chad buying the album and shuffle-playing new acquisitions.)

Could have wished that it was longer—about 80 minutes total—but probably for the best given that it's a weeknight. Here, have the slowed-down acoustic sing-along version of "Gimme Sympathy" that was just the right way to end the night:



[*] Dear Asshole,

Really, bellowing "Show us your tits!" during a heartfelt (though admittedly less than concise) discussion from the lead singer about her angst over the state of the world today? I'm so disappointed that I was not actually able to set you on fire with the force of my glare.

No love,
Me
