Metric

PETE COTTELL

Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[JOGGING MUSIC] You might not remember the days when Metric was known more as a Broken Social Scene offshoot than a standalone alt-rock radio staple—in which case, latest record Synthetica is likely what brought you to the party. Unless you’re miffed by the group parting ways from minimalist anthems like “Combat Baby” and “Calculation Theme,” it’s hard to blame the Canadian foursome for beefing up production and aiming for a larger stage. That larger stage happens to include lasers, keyboards, giant LED screens and a whole lot of Canadian dollar signs. It suits them well, even if you got left behind.
