Actually, Metric should be on my list of bands I wish I'd had time to see. Seu Jorge as well, after reading Tim's description of that show.

I'm also thinking it would have been nice to see Metric. And maybe Ted Leo, at the very least for said cover. ^^

I love how you, Lemming, and I have entangled posts on Coachella that requires people to look at all three of our pages to get the piece together certain stories (like that about the pimp hat). Not to mention the fact that multiple posts and comments refer to other posts and comments... Go Meta! (Remind me to tell you the story of the D & D character named Meta that someone I know once played...)
