Metz blurs the lines of noisy and pretty when they open for Fidlar at the Social

Toronto noise rockers Metz busied themselves for the past three years relaxing the sonic chokehold of their debut to let in fresh breaths of air on II, which dropped Tuesday this week. If you can peer through the thick clouds of noise, there are downright pretty flashes of piano and bizarre synthesizer-based segues between forceful, reverb-drenched vocals. It’s immediately exciting, and imagining the immersive possibilities of catching this Canadian band live in our swampy state would be enough to get your heart checked in preparation. But add to that the fact that Metz is opening this show for L.A. surf-punks Fidlar – who have a rowdy release due out on Burger Records this year and we are hoping we might get a little preview of new songs – and the combination is sure to crush. Find your pulse before you miss out. 

7 p.m. Tuesday, May 12 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org | $15-$17
