|Show Preview: Metric – March 27, 2006 – The Showbox
by Ashley Graham
When we last checked in with Metric they were headlining at the Crocodile Café. It’s no small feat, sure, but it’s not the big time. Here at the Wig, I think that bridge gets crossed when a band headlines at the Showbox. The next logical step for Metric might have been a booking at Neumos—a mid-sized venue that offers a little larger glimpse at a band’s progression up that never-ending music industry ladder.
But for Metric? No. They’ve decided to skip that little in-between stage. They’re headed all the way to the stage of the Showbox. And in just five months time, that’s a damn fine jump.
And why not? Metric’s offering up dance-y, fun as hell, pop and their little frontlady Miss Haines ain’t so bad either. If you didn’t see them last time, buy your ticket for next Monday’s show soon. You’ll want to catch them this time around—and if you don’t, well, we’ll save you a seat at the Tacoma Dome.
Welcome, Metric, to the big time.
