METZ at Metro, August 2012 (more by Grant MacAllister)
Toronto's sonic sandblasters METZ are in NYC for CMJ and will play four times while here, including the free BV day party on Friday (10/19) at Public Assembly. METZ play the front room at 3 PM, shortly after Deap Vally and Murals. We swear we'll post the whole line-up soon!
METZ's ripper of a debut album came out last week on Sub Pop and is highly recommended. You can download "Wet Blanket" and "Headache" above and you stream the whole album and watch the just-released video for "Wet Blanket" below.
METZ's additional CMJ shows include the official Oh My Rockness CMJ showcase on Tuesday (10/19) at Cameo that also features Chrome Canyon (who just played 285 Kent), Roomrunner, Moon King, Mood Rings, and Heavenly Beat. OMR, which is celebrating its eighth birthday, is throwing a CMJ Kickoff party tonight (10/15) at Pianos. METZ then plays Thursday (10/18) at Knitting Factory for the Sub Pop showcase; and the Pitchfork showcase at Villain on Friday night (10/19).
If you can't make the CMJ week shows, METZ will be back in November for two more NYC shows. All dates are listed below, along with the new video, album stream and show flyers.
