Je Veux Te Voir: Metric in Lyon

One can never have enough Metric, right? Apparently that isn't just the opinion of yours truly, but the maxim of one of the hardest working bands I know. As Chromewaves reports, Ms. Haines and company will be playing a slew of Canadian dates - including both V Fests - over the next few months. As previously mentioned, I might finally get a chance to seem 'em when they play at the Ottawa Bluesfest on July 13th.

Things aren't slowing down on the studio side of things either, as the band has released a video for "Empty," Live It Out's third single. I'm not totally sure about that choice; I actually wonder if the album's title track would have been better, both as a one-of release and as the album's opener, but it is hard to resist that, "Shake your head/It's empty" line. And if that wasn't enough, NME's interview with Emily reveals that a new album is in the works, due for a release early next year.

So, having said all that, let's enjoy some Old World Underground favorites. Here's Metric's May 4th, 2005 set, recorded in Lyon, France as part of Les Femmes s'en Mêlent. A few pictures from the show are available here.
