Metric, Girl Talk Rock Riottt

Watch as Emily Haines and crew Live It Out and as Greg Gillis gets behind his laptop at the San Francisco fest.

The Rapture, Clipse, Explosions in the Sky, Tokyo Police Club, the Presets, Deerhoof, and the Wrens were just some of the bands that descended on San Francisco to play that city’s annual Be the Riottt! festival last November (read more). Now, the event has released videos of live performances from two of its stars, Metric and Girl Talk. Watch as new-wave quartet Metric perform tracks off their latest, Live It Out, and laptop mash-up maestro Girl Talk tears through his hardly RIAA-approved break-out, Night Ripper.
