Metric/Band of Skulls @Republic 11/29







Band of Skulls

View the whole set HERE

The Metric/Band of Skulls show at Republic Nov 29 was pretty solid, despite my dismal expectations for turnout. Apparently my estimation skills went out window along with my pride, health, and sobriety when I showed up in this town a couple years ago. Metric really drew a solid crowd. 500+ maybe? Band of Skulls really wasn’t much to speak of. You could hear din of crowd chatter over the group, and the group was showing it. When Fleet Foxes recently described their new album as “pretty boring“, the image of BOS sulking around stage immediately popped into my head an as visual accompaniment to the term. Unfortunately for the group, this is an association I plan on making for a long, long time. Metric saved the show. Their energy extended into the crowd and the terrific mix in the club didn’t hurt. Photos were marginal, I am not satisfied.
