Cut Copy’s September 17 appearance at The Metro was one of those shows attendees entered with almost impossibly high expectations. After the Australians’ giddy but truncated performance at this summer’s Pitchfork Music Festival, it was going to be a real challenge for the band to surpass that appearance, at least as far as outperforming the mythic proportions that set had grown into. The band took the stage and performed that rarest of miracles by turning in a nearly perfect set in all ways: the pacing was perfect, the song selection was impeccable, the crowd gave everything the band threw at them and more from the duration of the set, and the band created a new myth on The Metro’s stage.
