For the first time in a couple of years, New York will see Shea Stadium host a bloodthirsty team calling themselves METZ. But in this case, Shea is the hole-in-the-wall Brooklyn performance space that took the baseball mecca’s name—so they could give indie bands a “Live at Shea!” claim—and METZ are the screaming-prone, guitar-torturing grunge trio who garnered a lot of buzz at last year’s CMJ Marathon. Since then, the band has been on a winning streak, releasing their critically lauded self-titled LP last October and playing New York three more times after that. This week, they’re
repeating the eardrum-antagonizing feat with two shows, one at Shea and another at the Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday. And just like at the Beatles’s infamous Shea show, earplugs are encouraged to dampen the roar. Tonight with Odonis Odonis, and tomorrow at the Bowery Ballroom with Soupcans.
