Metric/St. Vincent
Sasquatch Festival 2012 - Day 2
Sasquatch Festival 2012 - Day 2

7:32pm Metric wrapped up a touch early; partly because one new song ("Lost Kitten") was stopped 10 seconds into it and Emily decided to strike it from the set. Aside from that odd error, Metric played a fair set. They cited the show as their "public debut" of Synthetica and they did play mostly new material (7 out of 11 songs), most of which sounds promising. It's always hard to judge new material accurately as the audience doesn't know it so it always comes across slightly weak or stiff. Metric opened their set with newbie "Artificial Nocturne" (also the album's opener). It was one of the stronger new tracks. The other stand outs were "Youth Without Youth" (when played live it seemed to lose it's sluggishness of it's studio version) and "Nothing But Time", a synth/piano number that builds each verse until drums kick in and the song finishes with a flourish of Emily Haines' Pro-One synth. The band closed with an acoustic version "Gimme Sympathy" that had pretty much the entire amphitheater singing along. [The Province]

Metric's set was very mediocre. She did a much better set back in 2008 at APW.

Meanwhile, seeing as how this was my 3rd year in a row, I don't think im going back. This is the country's best running festival in terms of line-up, people, and setting. But at 27, I feel like the oldest person there. It was hard to relate to people when you're 6-7 older than everyone. Plus, all the hassle of traveling there with 10+ friends is just wearing and expensive.

Dry the River, not a good name!
Sol not a good band name either but a perfectly good Mexican beer
Com Truise, Tom Cruise's half cousin with down syndrome that checks his emails on his Ipad as "performance".
Nobody Beats the drum, not a good name or good haircuts.
St. Vincent looking good as always, but is probably a royal pain in the ass to deal with.
