INDIE NEWS REEL: RACING STARS

by charles poladian So it’s that time again. I know what you’re thinking: what now? Well, it’s near the end of the year and near the end of the decade, so it’s all about the list. What’s the best toy to get, what’s the best album of 2009, what’s the best album of the first [...]

QC REVIEW: METRIC @ MASSEY HALL

by cheryl santa maria Emily Haines is, in every sense of the word, a star. Her incredible voice, combined with her fashion sensibilities and energetic stage presence, have been known to send audiences into a frenzy and last night’s sold-out performance at Toronto’s Massey Hall was no exception. A member of the indie rock scene [...]

METRIC @ TERMINAL 5

by ledoux & pelly (pictures by marc evan) An effervescent Emily Haines neutralized the architecturally inefficient Terminal 5 last night. Touring for their album Fantasies, Metric kicked off their short but satisfying set with “Twilight Galaxy” and would settle in as the concert wore on. The band’s connections to NYC were evident in their performance [...]

PERFECT PROBLEM: REGINA VS METRIC ON 6/17

alex p. This week I realized the horrible coincidence of Regina Spektor and Metric playing on the very same evening in Manhattan.

QC ALBUM REVIEW: FANTASIES

(pics by alex poulin & marc evan) Metric is in my top 3 favorite bands based on my relative perception of music combined with my life experiences, but the wait for the new record is becoming unbearable. Its been three years of waiting for the new album, pacified throughout the duration with [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 17 (OCT 12 – 18)

by bmac I saw Cold War Kids last night @ the TLA in Philly, and they absolutely killed it. I didn’t really know what to expect going into the concert because I was hoping for a high energy show but their new album, Loyalty to Loyalty, is a little on the slow side. Luckily they [...]

LIMBO LAND

by rex strom Wow I’ve been a spastic weirdo the last couple days. Awkward pauses during phone conversations, random space outs during the day, my brain and body are the opposite of connected. Events and circumstances have discarded of my life routine and future plans have been dry erased off the marker board. Confusion, excitement, [...]
