Metric coming to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa
Only time will tell if we end up loving Metric's upcoming album Synthetica as much as we loved their 2009 album Fantasies (spoiler alert: we probably will). All we know is the alterna-synth group's first single, Youth Without Youth, punches us square in the part of our brains where Muse and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs shack up and make babies.
If you feel the same way, we have some doubly good news. First of all, according to their website, Metric is coming to the Ritz Ybor on Sept. 29. Ticket prices and a public on-sale date have not yet been announced, but the good news is, if you purchase an advance ticket to one of their fall shows through their website, you'll receive a free download of Youth Without Youth, PLUS a free digital copy of Synthetica when it's released on June 12, PLUS five bonus "Synthetica Reflections" tracks.
Say what you want about the value of the American dollar relative to the Canadian loonie, but these chic Ontarians know a deal when they see it. We'll be hopping on that ticket deal pronto.
