the metros


Friday 26 October

The Metros sing about being kicked out of school - something that lead singer Saul has an affinity with. Inspired by ska, pop and punk, they supported Reverend and the Makers at the Barfly.


Sorry we were only able to keep performance videos online for a week after the festival.
