thank you ! :) that was great !

Me and my friend Michael (webmaster of Welovemetric.com) arrived early, around 2p.m because we really wanted to get to see the manager we're in touch with. She recognized us because we were preparing some handouts (?) with a metric picture and the link for the website/forum. She told us that they were really busy but that after soundcheck she'll give us a pass and we'll get to see them and interview them. It didn't happen, though. The band only arrived at 4.30p.m, they did the siundcheck until 7.30 so we had no time, as the doors opened at 8. (no first act, just Metric at 9!)

We were a bit disappointed but anyway, we were the very first ones so we had amazing spots in front row. We were just facing the pro-one, there were no fence so we were really close ! I wanted to be between Emily and Jimmy but there was a ampli at that place. Before the show, we gave away some hand outs and then the show started. They started with Twilight Galaxy, and I was a bit disappointed to see that the crowd wasn't really dancing, neither singing ! Though it changed during the most popular songs like Handshakes, Empty, Dead Disco, Monster Hospital and Live it Out. Those are the only old songs they played (hustle rose :cry: :cry: ), and they played all Fantasies, except for Blindness (again, :cry: :cry: ). Emily was wearing the dress she's wearing in the sick muse video clip, the glitters kept falling on the floor though !
they were really funny, and nice, and I was happy to see that when Emily was in front of the stage, nobody was trying to touch/grab her. She was just holding our hands etc.
Before Monster Hospital (encore), Emily went back on stage with a bottle of champagne , there was champagne all over the stage and then she gave the bottle (full !!) to the crowd. Unfortunately, when the crowd was dancing during the show, instead of crushing my head against the Pro-One, I used to make a move and fall a little on stage. But that time, I slipped in champagne and crushed on stage. That was a brilliant moment in my life :lol:

After the show we saw Jimmy and Joshua, talked to them and they were really nice !

Jimmy told me he was checking on our website yesterday and that he was really thankful, we took pictures, we talked about the limited edition, that I'm going to see them back in Brussels, etc etc etc !

Then, with Josh, it also was really funny! we talked about bang lime, the website (we gave him a handout during the show but he only saw the picture of the band and then told us : ooooh okay, now I get it! during the show I was like : what the hell ! I know those guys, and I'm on it ! are they insane? lol. Plus, my friend put a hand out in Emily's boot, we don't know if she's noticed it haha !)

Josh told me that in Brussels, he's gonna call the security to kick me out because it's not my country haha. Then we talked for a few other minutes, took pictures and said goodbye as they were with friends, we didn't want to disturb them anymore !

Joules and Emily we supposed to come as well but as it was already midnight, we left, cause we were so tired !

I took some pictures but they're really blurry as I had no right to use my flash :cry:

Quotations of the night : "Metric isn't CNN" Emily, saying that artists should stop to "fucking blahblahh"
"We're all gonna die of rock'n'roll, baby!" josh, when I told him I slipped in champagne
Emily :"Nous sommes prêtes" (prêtes is for girls)
The crowd:"-it's "prêt "!
Jimmy : "WE'RE FUCKING PRETES, OKAY !!"

:lol:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/octopuus/3501790313/ here again, you can see how close we were of the pro-one (and why we almost killed ourselves by hitting it with our heads !!) I'm the one with the head close to the pro-one, near a camera ...
