Arctic Monkeys @ Lollapalooza

arcticmonkeyslolla @AndyShore It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why the Arctic Monkeys rock as hard as they do. Lead singer, Alex Turner, has a unique voice, that while not overly impressive, works perfectly. There is no face melting guitar playing, but catchy riffs that keep you hooked. I think where the magic of the Arctic Monkeys comes from is their rhythm section. Nick O’Malley on bass and Matt Helders on drums create a dance-able groove within the context of a rock song. Nothing they do is that complex, just driven songs that keep you moving.

 

It was fun to be in the photo pit and turn around and watching all the packed in fans singing as loud as can be and smiling from ear to ear. The Arctic Monkeys exploded in the U.K., but showed that their music has a large fan base stateside. My favorite part of their set were the tunes off their debut album.  “The View From the Afternoon” and “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” had me singing along. Like the Fratellis last year at ACL, a rock show was exactly what I needed to beat the heat.
