What keyboard is in the piano case on stage? Is it the old-Emu or is Emilie using something new?
Also, Josh and Jimmy both seem to be using polyphonic DSI Prophet 08s now. Is that correct?

I edited Emily's Wikipedia page and added a section Instruments that might interest someone:

When performing live with her band Metric, Emily Haines sings and plays two synthesizers. Her primary synthesizer is Sequential Circuits Pro-One, which she has played since the band's early years. As secondary synthesizer, she played a Kawai MP9000 in Metric's early years, replaced by E-mu PK-6 Proteus Keys from 2003 to 2011, and followed by Clavia Nord Wave since 2012.

During some Metric live songs, Haines also plays a tambourine or an electric guitar. During Metric acoustic appearances, Haines sings and sometimes plays piano or harmonica, while her band mate James Shaw plays the acoustic guitar.

When performing live as Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton, she sings and plays a piano.

The current Metric live gear is:
Emily: Sequential Circuits Pro One, Clavia Nord Wave, Fender Mustang, tambourine, harmonica
James: Fender Jaguar, Gibson ES?, Gibson SG?, Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar, DSI Poly Evolver
Josh: Fender Precision Bass, DSI Prophet '08
Joules: Yamaha & Remo drumkits


[anyone knows the exact models of James' guitars?]

Knew some of that history, but not the Yamaha part! Very cool. 8)
I love watching Metric videos where Emily goes on the occasional synth-love rant, talking about Dave Smith/the Pro-One.

What did she play at the private show in vancouver? None of Emily's exact gear seemed to match the stuff she had at ACL days earlier.

I just find it hard they would rent/borrow gear locally.

Hold on, didn't Emily use an E-Mu Vintage Keys keyboard, not the Proteus?
Also, I suspect that maybe she was using the Vintage Keys in Vancouver.

She borrowed gear from my friend's band actually! Rococode (check them out they're awesome!) and Laura was really stoked Emily was using her keyboard.
