Dan Griffin of Arkells celebrates their one year anniversary of Jackson Square at the Chubby Pickle Oct. 28, 2009. The band will be opening for Canadian indie rockers Metric on April 4 at the Windsor Family Credit Union Centre.

Canadian indie rock stars Metric are set to play April 4 at the Windsor Family Credit Union Centre.

Recognized this year by the success of their singles Gold Guns Girls, Help I’m Alive and Stadium Love, Metric’s album Fantasies hit the Billboard Top 200 at 162.


This year has already been a huge success for the band. They received the Triumph of the Year Award from Myspace Music, as well as four nominations for the Annual Independent Music Awards.

The highly successful Toronto band will pair up with Arkells, another respected Canadian band hailing from Hamilton, ON.

Arkells are no strangers to the Windsor area. On July 11, 2009 they were one of two headlining bands playing for CBC Radio 3s Search for Canada’s Best Live Music Venue. They returned on Oct. 28  where they headlined at the Chubby Pickle. This also celebrated their one year anniversary of their CD Jackson Square.

Since Jackson Square’s release in 2008, they have received Record of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Alternative/Indie Record of the Year. Lead singer Max Kerman also captured the Hammy for male vocalist of the year at the Hamilton Music Awards on Dec. 4, 2009.

Tickets are selling for $35. Doors open at 7 p.m. and Arkells are set to hit the stage at 8 p.m.
