Pissed Jeans and METZ

April 15, 2010

I was in Toronto this week, where I saw one amazing show and one absolutely fucking terrible show. Below are some videos from the good one.

Pissed Jeans‘ performance had a lot in common with that Jesus Lizard concert DVD that came out a few years ago. Not sloppy, but they definitely rough around the edges. It doesn’t seem like a schtick with these guys like it does with so many other bands. My only complaint is that their set was all-too brief.

Here is “Boring Girls” from their first LP as an encore. Of sorts.

A number of sources have declared METZ the best band in Toronto. My knowledge of the city’s scene is admittedly limited, but I believe it. They’re loud and tight and they bludgeon the audience with industrial-strength awesome.

This is “Lump Sums” from the first of two 7″s they put out last year with We Are Busy Bodies. There’s a third one brewing, I hear.

    Ugh. If that’s the best thing Toronto has to offer I don’t think I’ll be visiting anytime soon.

      I’m shocked you would disparage both the band and the city.
