The Metric concert last night had to be the most punctual rock show to ever take place at the Fillmore Miami Beach. Maybe it was the five cameras preparing to stream the show live on Myspace; it was the Florida entry for Bud Light's 50/50/1 music festival -- 50 bands, playing 50 states on one night, sponsored by Bud Light.
But after the doors opened, it looked like only 50 people showed up. The crowd trickled in slowly for a decent, if far from sold-out show to see the Canadian headliners. Local garage trio, the Jacuzzi Boys, walked on stage at 8:30 on the dot. A puff of smoke engulfed Diego Monasterios' drum kit, and they were off.
