Tell us: How did you discover Metric?

Originally posted by desertseagull\r\n\r\nMetric has a growing following throughout North America w/o the benefit of major MTV/press exposure and at least where I live, none of the "alternative" radio stations I listen to play their music. So I thought it would be a good idea for those of us on the list to introduce ourselves and say how we first discovered the music of Metric -- was it from a chance visit to one of their shows? the poloroid ad? surfing the web? TV? radio? something else?\r\n\r\nAs for me, I discovered Metric on the telly.....I subscribe to satellite TV and every once in a while i like to listen to the Music Choice alternative channel where they often play kewl stuff I don't hear on the radio, and this summer/fall they have had combat baby on regular rotation. Then I checked out CD Baby on the web and the rest is history.....

I'd heard Combat Baby somewhere, somehow, and then one of my friends had it playing on a mix in the car one day. I thought it was great... and in the next few days heard my little sister listening to Metric - turns out her friend had given her an album. A local band minipop that I'm friends with opened for them in San Francisco at the Great American Music Hall a couple years ago, and now I am in love. My sister just gave me the new album for Christmas. :)

I was at a record store downtown toronto. They had Old World Underground Where Are You Now? For listening, and I listened to it, loved it, purchased it.

I was up late one night, listening to the radio, when Combat Baby came on. I had heard the song before liked it, so I decided I need to find out about this band to give some feminity to my music collection. The song ended and the anouncer said what the song was. I could figure out if he said Combat Baby, or Come Back Baby, so I took down both, I was sure he said Metric, and hoped I heard right. Next morning I googled Metric, found ilovemetric.com (thought it was a bit selfish... hahah) and listened to the MP3 clips. I kept on listening to them for 2 weeks or so and then realized a site had 2 minut clips of each song and listened to those for a week until I finally decided to buy the album. Old World Underground was the first album I ever bought, and it got me into music making me what I am now, a huge lover of music.\r\n\r\nHoly cow, journalist like or what, eh? Hah. Loser. That was to myself.
