You Oughta Know Artists Metric Promise SCOPE Will Be “Great,” We Believe Them

by (@zaragolden)

Up, up and away! Tomorrow we ship off to Miami for the SCOPE International Contemporary Art Show where we will celebrate a crop of fledgling visual artists who we think You Oughta Know (learn more about them here), and we are very excited to be bringing Metric, our You Oughta Know musical artist for December, with us to play the opening party!

When we caught up with the group last month, Metric lead singer Emily Haines assured us that “it will be great,” offering that “they have had too much fun there in the past” as evidence of the good art, music and beach town fun sure to come. “Different film and art inspiration come to us when we’re making music and sort of keep us going throughout the process,” she explains, citing an Italian radical architecture school as a particular inspiration and stop she’ll certainly be making when she’s down there. The boys in the band voiced excitement for late night beach trips, and we’ll offer that we are very excited to hear them perform some of the new stuff of Synthetica, like “Youth Without Youth,” as well as an oldie/goodie, like “Gimme Sympathy,” or two!
