There is this moment during the Metric gig:
“It’s about dreaming that you can do what you want. All along, you know, people will tell you that it is not possible, but, you know for us, we have been friends, we have been a band for ten years, you know. So, every show, every day that we get to make music means a lot to us.”
Singapore is enjoying a good run the past few years, in terms of bands bothering to come hold concerts. Metric was here on 31 July 2012. If you do a search on Youtube, you will find out that they do a similar acoustic version of Gimme Sympathy in their shows. Shortly before they begin, Emily Haines will do a little speech set to a guitar riff.
But that moment stuck with me, and it still remains the best part of the evening. Dreaming that you can do what you want. And I get to hear this while the one who shares my dreams and lives my hopes was standing next to me. <3
