The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?

One of my favorite bands, Metric. This is a beautiful acoustic version of one of their new songs, and it seems that they're playing it on a golf course in Palm Springs? Very sunshiny and strange.

Once I sent the singer Emily Haines one of my cds and she wrote back saying she'd listened to it driving across country and she really liked my voice. What a thrill!!!!!!

Metric are wonderful live.
Somehow, I stumbled upon them during the 'Old World Underground...' days, opening for Hot Hot Heat, in a tiny, dirty shithole club in Birmingham, AL. It was love at first sight, and I've been with them ever since.
I also got to see them during the 'Live It Out' tour. But have recently missed both Metric and Emily Haines' previous solo tours.

I stumbled on Metric by accident too! It was the craziest coincidence...Greg and I were staying in Santa Monica and decided to take a walk. We walked into a black as night bar and sat there, barely able to see a thing. All of a sudden the most BEAUTIFUL music came from the side of the room... we couldn't see who was playing it, but the melody and the lyrics moved me to tears. I went over to see who it was and it was... Metric. Before they were famous. I bought their ep and got Emily's email. They were super nice, and their show was amazing.
