SO, went to go see Metronomy and LA locals, The Mae Shi at the El Rey the other night. Ran into some friends and had a great time. The Mae Shi was on first. I had just saw them a PehrSpace a week prior. Pehrspace, for those of you who don't know is a little art space no bigger than your living room. The El Rey on the other hand is a bigger venue, with a capacity of about 900, opposed to a capacity of about 50 for Pehrspace. Regardless of small or big The Mae Shi killed it for me once again. They are so fun live and never cease to destroy even when the crowd (el rey) is a little stiff. They did their signature parachute/blanket over the crowd again, which is always interactive fun times. There are some pics here or that. Then Metronomy came on, they were fun, again the crowd was a bit stiff and the sound was too quiet I thouhgt, but really likable chaps from the UK. They had people dancing pretty good toward the end. Guess what, Metronomy is doing a secret show tomorrow night and yes, I have the info here. Check out the flier. Oh, and I added a video and pics of Metronomy.
