Emily Haines.

15 Jun

Broken Social Scene are returning to Auckland (having toured previously in early 2008), and everyone’s fingers are crossed they bring at least one of the girls with them this time. I know most people will be itching to see Feist, but me, I’d prefer to see the adorable Emily Haines.

I’ve always thought her other band, Metric, deserved a lot more attention than it’s seemed to attract. The songwriting is incredible, and it sits right in that zone – too sweet to be alternative, too interesting to be Top-40 – that’s been so popular for so long now in this part of the world.

If you’re in Auckland, you can still grab a ticket to Broken Social Scene on Friday 6th August at The Kings Arms. I know where I’ll be (sandwiched between that weird pillar and the door to the girls toilets, again).
