Arctic Monkeys @ ACL

arcticmonkeysacl @AndyShore Zilker Park had been transformed into a complete and total mud pit that smelled like the zoo, after a very rainy Saturday at ACL. The rain held out on Sunday, but it was as hot and muggy as could be. Plus, getting from stage to stage was a delicate balancing act as everyone trudged through the thick mud. The closer you pushed to a stage, the muddier it got. Luckily, Zack and I found a decent spot with some sort of solid ground to check out the Arctic Monkeys.

I was quite excited to see these guys again, after rocking out at their show at Lollapalooza in August. Lead singer, Alex Turner, greeted the crowd, saying they looked like they could use some Arctic Monkeys. After ripping through “Crying Lightening,” Turner antagonized the crowd trying to get them going a bit saying, “you’re all a bloody quiet bunch, aren’t you?”

Jamie Cook keeps all of the songs rocking with his impressive, but not over-the-top guitar chops. He is not a shredder by any means, but he is quite effective with his style. Drummer, Matt Helders, is always heavy with the toms, providing a dance-y rhythm to the rock songs. Not one member of the Arctic Monkeys stands out above the others, but they work together to create a simple rock and roll sound with catchy tunes that are fun to sing along to. I did just that for “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.” In the hot, muggy mess that was Sunday at ACL, this rock show was just what I needed to start my day.
