Plus, a Pop Song Correspondence to Lady Gaga from Lord Gaga of Gaga Manor, and Charlie Brown and Snoopy finally have a heart-to-heart.

Metric are Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw (and Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott Key, unable to attend this evening). An independent and innovative rock band, Metric self-released its last two albums, including 2012's Synthetica, which was listed in Spin magazine's Top 50 Albums of 2012. With "Help I'm Alive" from 2009's Fantasies, Metric became the first artist to achieve its first-ever top-20 hit on U.S. commercial radio without the backing of a traditional label. The group has earned Grammy nominations for its score work on the films Twilight: Eclipse and Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.
