Arctic Monkeys stop by Rockmount...again

Rockmount Ranch Wear has a slew of regular and returning customers. Among the latest: the Arctic Monkeys! In town this week for a show last night at the Ogden Theatre, the band stopped by Rockmount. Again. Last time the guys were in town a year ago warming up for the Black Keys at 1STBANK Center, they stopped by this LoDo institution to gear up.

"It's not everyday you get to hang out with guys who play for the world at the Olympics," says Steve Weil, Rockmount's president. "Its cool that Denver is on the map beyond our part of the world." According to Weil, the Arctic Monkeys left Rockmount yesterday with bags full of T-shirts and belts. Good to know that these Brits will be representing Denver wherever they go.
