Last year we caught Metric for the first time (despite being fans for years) with tens of thousands of others in an outdoor setting. They rocked everyone’s socks off delivering one of the best festival shows I’ve seen. Lucky contest winners and special guests will now be able to watch Metric perform songs from their new album Synthetica in one of Vancouver’s favourite music venues thanks to the Rogers Wireless Box Office.
