Metric made a tour stop in Detroit, and it was part of local radio station 93.9's "Riverfest" at the Fillmore. Shows here start earlier then I'm used to, and are rarely late, so Family of the Year was the only opening act I saw. Their music is sickeningly oversweet, intending to be so nice that even your grandmother would like it. "You bring the ocean / I bring emotion / together we make a love potion / you bring the ocean / I bring emotion / dancing all night in slow motion". The only noteworthy thing to happen in that performance was when the drummer gave his tambourines away to people in the crowd. I hope the band has a big tambourine budget.
This Is A Good Sign" sign. I remember him holding up that sign at the Rustbelt Market during the Ferndale Blowout. I guess that's kind of his thing. Wouldn't the good vibes that sign is supposed to give off be more needed at a place like Detroit City Council meetings? Everyone at a big concert is already in a good mood. (Also, his real name might be Kevin)
