- Rock the Garden 2013 What a day. One of the most exciting and memorable Rock the Gardens is in the history books. Thanks to all who came and made it such a rousing success.
- Theft of the Dial: Metric Metric's most recent visit to the Twin Cities included a dynamite show to a packed-house at the State Theater in Minneapolis; but before they even did the soundcheck, they took over our airwaves.
- Album Review: Metric - Synthetica Coming from 14 years of hard work and dedication to their music and their fans, Metric has a career that stands out against their indie rock peers. Their new album "Synthetica" exposes a darker side of Metric's sound and lyrics.
- Metric performs in the UBS Forum When Metric made their debut on the United States music circuit with the single "Combat Baby" in 2004, the band probably didn't know how ravenously they'd be greeted. Now they've become one of the biggest musical exports out of Canada, and they're primed to become an international hit.
