Want to hear a new song from Metric? Thought so.
Let’s party. Then let’s cry.
Get the hell outta Dodge.

Trapped inside living vicariously through your fun-having, summer-loving, concert-going friends? Perfect! Insatiable and Fearless Music Aficionado Sarah is back with another dispatch from Lollapalooza, which is probably a lot more fun than whatever you’re doing right now.
Metric churns out another video from their 2009 album ‘Fantasies,’ album sales hit record lows, Alanis Morissette gets married, Belle & Sebastian announces tour, and full lineups revealed for Rock The Bells and Lollapalooza.

“The plan was simple: get to Germany, soak up the city for the first evening, see as much of Berlin as possible the next day before attending brilliant Metric show, seduce Emily Haines, stay up all night in the city that never sleeps and fly back to Nantes at 7 A.M.”
