Metric @ Coacehlla

Emily Haines, lead singer and synth player for Metric, gave a special girl power shoutout on Sunday ... to her Pro-One keyboard.

"The Pro-One is one of those instruments, they're like a woman. You can't understand them, there's like 1,000 knobs, and it cries every time you touch it," she said as the temperamental Pro-One faltered on a song.

"I'm proud to be a girl! And I'm proud to play an instrument that behaves like an [effing] woman every show!"

Then after ordering the audience to tell the Pro-One they loved it, in unison, Metric launched into "Poster of a Girl." [San Diego Union Tribune]
