Metric @ Bowery Ballroom - 11/19/13
Metric

After Metric brought their tour supporting Paramore to MSG last week (11/13), they announced they'd swing back around NYC for their own much smaller show, which happened last night (11/19) at Bowery Ballroom. Their 17-song set was made up mostly of material from their two most recent albums -- Synthetica and Fantasies -- and 2005's Live It Out. During their encore, they dedicated "The Police and the Private" to the end of NYC's stop-and-frisk program and dedicated an acoustic rendition of "Gimme Sympathy" to the late Lou Reed, who had joined them on stage at their 2012 Radio City show. Pictures from the show are in this post.

Metric also played Letterman last week, and you can watch a video from their performance, along with more Bowery Ballroom pictures, the setlist and a couple videos, below...
