Metric+Bear In Heaven
Although Metric will be stopping through New York area in August on the Lilith Fair(!), their performance tonight at 3,000-capacity Terminal 5 will likely be more intimate on every count. The Canadian indie-rock group's most recent album, Fantasies, contains so many skittery, layered nuances that the PNC Bank Arts Center may swallow them whole during Lilith. The album's single "Help I'm Alive" will take on a whole new meaning. Openers Bear in Heaven play moody, textured psych-rock that's even more echoey than the headliners'.
