After completing a major Canadian tour and reaching the top of Billboard’s Heatseekers chart with their most recent release titled Fantasies, it seemed a little… quaint to have Metric at the Webster Theater in Connecticut’s capital city.

On the Verge – Wale at The Webster

February 16th, 2009 by

This night, This crowd, and This venue is what counts in the entertainment industry, or so they say. At Hartford’s Webster Theater,  however,  This was not Wale’s night. The February 5th show had me begging for a different night and definitely for a different crowd. The performance is best summed up by Wale sitting down at one point near the end of the show, looking dejected and asking the crowd if anyone smoked weed. Flat.
