(CBS Local) When Metric's equipment failed to arrive from Miami for Friday's Night 1 of LIVE 105′s Not So Silent Night at Oakland's Oracle Arena, it didn't stop them from performing.

"For some reason that we will never understand the freight company just didn't put it on the plane," explained Metric's Emily Haines.

Joked guitarist Jimmy Shaw, "Our gear is still partying in South Beach." Not to disappoint fans, Metric and LIVE 105 staff scrambled to find acoustic instruments including a baby grand piano for the band to use. Haines and Shaw hit the stage a wowed concert goers with stripped down, intimate acoustic versions of some of Metric's signature tracks plus a cover of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right." more on this story
