Metronomy rocked the sold-out crowd at the Electric Owl over the hump (day) on Wednesday, October 12th, playing an hour-and-a-quarter long set that left every human in the room (for real) in disbelief that they really played that long.
"That was f*(king RAD! But they didn’t even play for, like, an hour!" said one stoked fan.
"Actually, they played for an hour and 17 minutes. Which is over an hour," I replied, showing him the time.
"WOA! That’s sooo crazy!"
And it was. With a set that had the England quartet jamming out “The Bay”, “The Look”, “She Wants”, and “A Thing For Me”, to the beat of faux-heart white LED lights strapped to their chests, it was hard not to bust out a step-kick-punch-dance to their charged up sounds.
The band felt the love in the air too. Although lead singer Joseph said it was, “difficult to dance around much with a light on [our chests] wired back into Oscar’s pedal,” they thought the crowd was great, the Electric Owl was great, and that Vancouver never fails to show them a wicked time.
We’re already set for their next visit.
