Metric & Joywave LIVE at the Moore Theatre
Toronto-based Rock band Metric made a stop at the historic Moore Theatre in Seattle last night for an exciting night of music. With this being their latest trip to the Northwest since the release of their latest album "Pagans In Vegas", you could definitely feel a sense of anticipation from the audience.
Opening act Joywave warmed the incoming crowd with high energy stadium anthems that they are accustom to delivering. The Rochester N.Y. indie rock band were certainly a force to be reckoned with. Bass player Sean Donnelley was superbly animated and lead singer Daniel Armbruster delivered powerful vocals all while frantically hopping between band mates. With songs featured in the latest NFL Madden video game, as well as a national phone commercial, the world is obviously catching on to one stellar up and coming band.
Then it was on to the headlining band, Metric. Their performance had an abundance of guitar riffs, beautiful vocals, thick electronic beats and a phenomenal synchronized light show. Guitarist James Shaw consistently provided magical guitar solos and lead vocalist Emily Haines impressed with her range of vocal and synth talents. At one point of their set, Emily invited about 50 Seattlites to join her on stage for a moment to sing along to a song. With the audience in unison, it was truly a special moment for everybody.
