November 15 and 16 at the Mercury Lounge. Zach Vowell sums up the current state of hysteria over these guys in today’s P-Fork:
There’s hype and then there’s HYPE. The Sheffield, England-based baby band Arctic Monkeys have somehow harnessed the power of the video iPod, Asian bird flu, the Arcade Fire, and Samuel Alito into one big blazing ball of buzz, resulting in mass hysteria and the UK-chart-topping debut of their second single ever, “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.”
Of course we take note whenever the UK press gets a hard on. For the unitiated, “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” and three other tracks are streaming at MySpace. If you like those, you’ll like this “Dancefloor” b-side.
