Having seen Metric live once before, I knew I was in for a great show. Still, I walked away more impressed with them than before.

Metric

The band came out to a giant roar from the packed seats at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre and started things off with a bang. Right from the get-go Metric was on point, delivering a tight and well-oiled set. They played a bunch of songs from their newest album, Fantasies, such as "Gimme Sympathy" and "Gold Guns Girls," as well as some old favourites like "Monster Hospital" and "Poster Of A Girl." They even played "Eclipse (All Yours)," which the band wrote for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack (and is sure to gain them a whole slew of new fans).

Frontwoman Emily Haines once again proved why she is one of music's coolest women, rocking out and running around the stage in a gorgeous silver dress. Guitarist James Shaw, drummer Joules Scott-Key, and bassist Josh Winstead all kept up perfectly with Haines' energetic performance.

My personal favourite part was when the band played "Stadium Love." For one thing, it's a great song; but for another, Metric really does have stadium love. One look around the crowd, singing and dancing along to every song, proves that this Toronto indie band is only getting better with time.
