Contest:: Win 2tix to see Metric + CD

After winning the hearts of fans and critics with the release of the Polaris shortlisted Fantasies, Metric hasn't exactly slowed down. They are touring the shit out of the record, about to drop a collection of B-sides and pulling down awards like Moses Malone pulled down rebounds. I know the band is divisive. Ican't think of another indie rock band (that is still indie) that causes more debate among music lovers; "they are too popular", "they are overrated", "they are my favorite band". Nothing you hear about the quartet seems shocking, but I'll be honest, Fantasies is as solid a collection of singles as I've heard in a long time, and the band dares to be great and is willing to accept the backlash that comes with trying to be more than just another band.

Anyway, they are bringing their dynamic show to Halifax with the The Arkells, the scruffy, Hamilton outfit that has been known to burn stage after stage to the ground. The show is April 14th @ The Cunard Centre and even though you can still get tickets here, at $39.50 a pop, taking advantage of the chance to get two tix and a copy of Fantasies just makes sense.

We will draw the (3) - that's right, three - winners on March 26, so enter now by sending us an email (HEROHILL AT GMAIL DOT COM) or leaving the details in the comments section down below. Good luck, and here's Metric busting through a cover of The Strokes track, The End Has No End, just to get you excited.
