Metric at the 9:30 Club
I went to see and photograph Metric’s first headlining show in DC at the 9:30 Club. I was shooting for OnTap magazine.
The band has gotten better and better each time I’ve seen them. I saw them open for the Walkmen and another show opening for the Stills—both times at the 9:30 Club. The new album is a nice progression from Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? and was produced by the band’s guitarist, James Shaw. Based off the stuff I’ve heard (going back to their now ancient Static Anonimity EP), he’s got to be a mad scientist in the studio. Although you don’t hear it in a lot of the music, his pedal board rivals my own.
The photos from the show are on a set at Flickr. I’ve now got to audit the photos of the other two opening bands.
