Just got back :D

Great show as usual, the support were awful though.

The set list was pretty much the same as usual, I hope it gets mixed up before their next show here. Crowd seemed dead at times and strangely a much older crowd than usual, are Metric on some lift music playlist? Fair play to them though, they've come a long way from the days when I saw then play in basement clubs to sparse crowds.

Maybe the hipsters were slow off the mark and could only get tickets to the Koko show? :lol:

The support were Wolf Gang who had some odd moonwalking guitarist.

The gig wasn't bad, but the acoustics of the Empire really for me dicked around with Emily's voice, it just got lost amongst the noise.

Oh and managed to catch Emily leaving the venue amongst a handful of the more enthusiastic fans waiting for the band to pop out. Managed to get my copy of Secret Carnival Workers signed, she definitely wasn't expecting that to turn up! ;)

Oh btw just a reminder that Metric are on Jools Holland tonight. Although they'll also be on the longer show on Friday, but I thought I'd watch it tonight too

I can't speak for the quality over at KOKO back on Sunday since I wasn't there (voxpop suggests that it was the better of the two). What I can say is that the Electric Ballroom last May sounded a heck of a lot better than last night!

And yes Jools - in HD no less. Wondering if anyone is nice enough to rip the programme? I'd do it, but have no capture card. iPlayer is probably the only option then...

Shepherds Bush is well known for muddy sound, I thought Emily struggled on Empty and Sick Muse though. Maybe her vocal style is better suited to smaller rooms?

I just hope that we get a more varied set list next time, looking through some bootlegs I've got makes me miss Hustle Rose, Rock Me Now, Love is a Place, POAG :( Will we ever hear those songs again?

I know what you mean, Metric seem to have always focused their setlists on their latest album though and I don't know if I can see them changing that.

And I'll record Jools Holland but it will only be from regular Sky on to a DVD, so no HD I'm afraid :lol:

If you did want to rip it from iplayer this program works well: http://po-ru.com/projects/iplayer-downloader/ (It downloads stuff in mp4 format. It also works for radio shows, downloads them as mp3s)

Ah yes, you must have been one of the disappointed party leaving O'Neills! Did you find a place to drink in the end?

PM me your name for facebook photos from the gig! :)

EDIT: I never saw Joules after the gig, anywhere!

We went down to Hammersmith. Worst. Bar. Ever. Never again. Very very badly sung karaoke :/

Will do! Just need to make it so you can search for me on FB.

Me neither. Shame :(
