Metric 

Begin with Coldplay, remove Chris Martin, add Jenny Lewis sound-alike lead vocalist/keyboardist Emily Haines along with a bit of 80's new wave, and you have a starting point for Canadian-American quartet Metric. Unless you're from up north or deep into soundtracks, this could be one of the best groups you've never heard of. Metric's latest CD, "Synthetica," sounds like a product from a band in its prime that's been on the verge of making the big time for years. Listen to the bombastic "Youth Without Youth" or the lovely "The Void" and you'll hear why this group dominated the 2010 Juno Awards. A digital download of "Synthetica" is included with your ticket purchase. Half Moon Run opens the show.
