95x Holiday Whobilation: Awolnation, Metric 

When: Tue., Dec. 15, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $27.50
Metric singer Emily Haines has been one of rock’s best leading players for more than a decade now; earlier this year, I watched as she converted a good chunk of a sold-out Imagine Dragons audience into fist-pumping fans with only an opening set—and not for the first time. Her charisma and her band’s feisty take on synth pop can have even unfamiliar listeners singing along straightaway. AWOLNATION, who split the bill, have created some of this decade’s most lasting singles—the stomping “Sail” and the deliriously self-lacerating “Not Your Fault”—by hybridizing alt-rock trendlets and electro bombast. —Maura Johnston
