"I love Flying Ipis. I want to take them on the road forever!," said Emily of the Canadian New Wave band Metric during their concert last night. No we're not talking about the actual flying ipis, we're talking about the local band which was their opening act. "Ipis... did I say it right? I know it's a cockroach!I'm in the know you guys!," Emily reacted when the crowd cheered at her comment.
Those were only some of the few things the band said when they had a chance. Most of the time the band fell silent, focusing on playing music for their beloved crowd. Track after track, the band wowed the crowd. Metric didn't say much but they did play a lot. They embraced the dead air that filled the venue and took it as an opportunity to prepare for their next track.
Anne Curtis, Erwan Heussaff and Nicole Anderson are only some of the celebrity attendees of the event. Other fans came in with their signs and posters as early as 6 o'clock in the evening in order to be able to secure a good view on the floor and on the balcony. They sang along and chanted every lyric the band threw at them. Metric got to serenade their fans and followers with songs like "Black Sheep," "Help I'm Alive," and "Gimme Sympathy," to name a few. By the time the concert was over, VIP ticket buyers got the chances to mix and mingle with the band at the after party.
