Last week Jeff made a post about how hard it can be to get good concert photos and wondered what the secret to my occasionally good-looking rock pictures was . . . well, here's proof that it's all about being close, cuz my long distance shots of the Arctic Monkeys at Webster Hall Saturday night are plenty rough.
So, yeah. Saturday night I checked out the Arctic Monkeys, whose first ever US appearance I had caught last year, with Pamela. There were two big reasons for my seeing the band again: 1) For liking the Arctic Monkeys and 2) I wanted to see how they held up on repeat performances.
They still play fast . . .
I don't remember there being a tamborine before. . .
And now the singer guy is totally opposed to facing the audience. . .
The band is still something else, but it's hard being satisfied with seeing them from the middle of Webster Hall when you've watched them from the front of the Mercury Lounge. Look at me, bragging. Sorry.
