Metric at AREA 506

AREA 506 Festival is a must-attend event in Uptown Saint John, Canada, happening every year over the New Brunswick Day long weekend. It's a celebration of the best in music, culture, and goods from the eastern provinces.

In 2023, my brother and I biked/ferried there from Nova Scotia to see the festival which featured an impressive lineup, including Metric, the Sheepdogs, Sam Roberts Band, Ria Mae, The Blue Stones, Neon Dreams, Billy Talent, The Beaches, Crown Lands, Dear Rouge, and a host of talented Canadian artists.

Metric delivered an amazing performance, as expected. Their tight musicality was on full display, with Emily Haines' energetic presence setting the tone for a night of indie pop bliss. Supporting their 2022 and 2023 album "Formentera" and "Formentera II" Metric has multiple upcoming shows across the US and Canada.
