Touring in support of their newest record, Strange Peace, Toronto's METZ booked two New York City area shows on Wednesday, October 4th and Thursday, October 5th in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Both concerts featured fiery sets by local bands Bambara and Uniform. The Music Hall of Williamsburg show was up first and METZ were as loud and ferocious as ever. The trio of singer/guitarist, Alex Edkins, bassist Chris Slorach, and drummer Hayden Menzies played songs both new and old in front of a giant backdrop, dramatic lighting and strobes. If you catch METZ on their current tour, please don't forget to bring your earplugs.
