Arctic Monkeys at the Ogden Theatre, 5/28/13

ARCTIC MONKEYS @ THE OGDEN THEATRE, 5/28/13 During the decade Arctic Monkeys have been together and the seven years of space since their debut album, the guys have exchanged their polos for panache. While their lyrics continue to question their lives and loves, the stage is reserved for charm. They ooze it. The four men who walked on stage at the Ogden Theatre last night were all tight black Tees and even tighter pants, legs like pipe cleaners, coifs like Danny Zuko's -- struts like Rizzo's. This is a heavier, broodier, post-Josh Homme Arctic Monkeys. It's also a considerably louder one.
