>>Two years ago, I bought Arctic Monkeys tix right when they went on sale for their first U.S. shows. It took two days to sell out.

Untrue. Those first two Mercury Lounge shows were put on sale waaaaaay early, and tix were available for a long time. I'd bought mine before I even heard the band's music b/c I thought they'd be a goofy garage act.


You think you've been waiting for them a long time? Shani and I wandered into a little club in Glasgow back in Sept. 2005. We just happened to stumble on a great little band who was rocking the house down. After their set we went up and got the name of the band. When we got back home we wrote to them insisting they play New York. Fast forward to summer 2006, and they're playing Reading/Leeds. And by the time they get to NYC, their music's in a friggin iPod commercial! And playing with Pete Townshend and opening for the Police. I'm glad they're doing so well, but it's a little annoying. I knew them first!


Gotta agree with the comment about subtitles, couldn't understand a word of the "stage banter" when they played Brixton(London), shame really, brilliant except for that. Oh and before I forget they're bringing out a DVD of the Brixton concerts, meant to be jst the Friday 2nd gig bt am guessing it'll be all brixton gigs


I like guitarists who have stickers on their guitars. Yes, I do.
