Tired hands, quiet minds. By Big Cartel.

Playlist: T.O. by METZ

Who better to give us a sonic tour of Toronto than one of the city’s finest bands? METZ has garnered international acclaim as one of the world’s most electrifying and powerful live bands, and they’re here with some music.

Exclaim!, Canada’s premier music mag, wrote “Their whiplash of distortion is made with precision, a contained chaos. But you would never talk about them like that. Because METZ are not something you study or analyze, they are something you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple.”

METZ’s selections span genres and decades of Toronto’s underground music scene. The quality and variety of music shows not only rich history of creative talent in the city, but also how supportive its communities have been in lifting up unique voices.
