The last time Metric was in town -- September of 2018 -- they played Viejas Arena opening for Smashing Pumpkins. It was great to see them in the headlining slot!

Fun fact: Metric actually started out with the name "Mainstream." After releasing a five-song, self-titled EP in 1998, they changed it. (Winstead pictured)
