METZ at Public Assembly - 10/19/12
BrooklynVegan Friday Day Party

While much of the BV team has already seen and been sold on METZ a bunch in the last couple years, I didn't get around to it until this year's CMJ at the BrooklynVegan day party on Friday (10/19) (they went on right after Savages). And having not been fully won over on the band's self titled LP (out now via Sub Pop), I admittedly didn't go into it with the same high expectations that many of the people who packed the venue had. That said, it only took me about a few seconds into their first song to "get it," and I'm 100% sold on METZ now. If anyone else out there is a naysayer, many will agree with me that METZ is really a band you have to see live. They're ruthless on stage, naturally thrashing around in the way that you just weren't seeing in indie rock's recent years when it was still rejecting punk. And lucky for METZ (and all of us), they've come along at exactly the right time, because people are showing that they really do care about this sort of stuff again.

More pictures and a video from METZ's set at the BV day party (sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon, Sailor Jerry, Mercy, and Raw Revolution) , and more tour dates, below...

They were really good, and I went in pretty disinterested.

this band rips.

Lots of mediocre pseudo post punk garage rock is fun live. Doesn't mean it's good or will be cared about in 12 months.

what with everyone imposing these stupid time limits

I will 'not care' about this band in 1 year and 355 days. Thus I will be 10 days ahead of everyone else. Suck it, latecomers!
