The Toronto trio played a Soho tattoo parlour thanks to Converse
Metz played a one-off gig in the basement of The Circle tattoo parlour in Soho, London last night (Aug 7).
The post-hardcore trio from Toronto played the 100-capacity venue as part of a Converse ‘Get Loud’ campaign to launch a new line of rock craftsmanship sneakers.
During the hour-long set, Metz played most of the tracks from their self-titled 2012 debut album as well as a new song, ‘Can’t Understand’ and last year’s single ‘Dirty Shirt’. “We had a blast!” bassist Chris Slorach told NME after the show. “It reminded me so much of the venues we came up in back at home.”
Gig-goers also had the chance to sign up to receive one of 60 free tattoos from tattoo artists including Adrien Edek, Matt ‘Oddboy’ Barrett-Jones and Frederick Reinel.
