Gallery: Shots from Metro Bash II

Metronome Charleston celebrated year number two with a fun bash at the Tin Roof on Sept. 13. Six teams signed on for the pre-show Rock ‘n’ Roll Trivia game (the team “Darius Fucker” won concert tickets and Tin Roof bar cash).

Lindsay Holler and the Western Polaroids kicked things off with a dynamic set (and me filling in on bass guitar). One-man band Scott Dence (of Dumb Doctors, Boring Portals) rocked a bass drum, high-hat, and six-string through a loud and rowdy set of originals. The Danielle Howle Band — led by veteran songsmith Danille Howle — wowed the crowd with some soulful new tunes. Sexbruise plugged in their synths, drum machines, and guitars for a late-evening rap-dance party (the Coolio nod and “middle school dance” jam went over quite well).

Proceeds benefitted the bands, Metronome’s website expenses, and Camp Happy Days. Visit for more.
