I hate to say it, but I had low expectations for Pitch Perfect. The initial premise of it sounded like something a little to late to come off of the Glee singing/comedy hype (Glee has made its mark and in my opinion isn’t as big of a deal as it once was, I am however a Gleek). […]

Canadian alt rockers Metric are no strangers to Kansas City, but the popular band has mostly performed as an opening act for Kansas City shows. Finally, the band was playing the city in a much deserved headlining spot and the difference in this performance compared to the other ones in the last few years was astounding. This was Metric’s best Kansas City performance to date.
