Metric @ Union Station

Yesterday Samsung’s mobile phone division sponsored a short but sweet outdoor concert starring the very excellent Metric.

The band hit the stage at 7:15 PM and played a tight fifty minute set before taking their final bows and disappearing. Front St. was closed in both directions in front of Union Station where they performed; most of these photos are taken while standing on the concrete median in between the two directions for traffic. Before and during the show, Samsung representatives circulated through the crowd to demonstrate the Samsung iPhone Galaxy S, which looks like a pretty decent Android OS phone. I hope Samsung’s marketing department decides this was a good way to promote their products, companies should be encouraged to put on more free summertime concerts.
