Arctic Monkeys @ The Ritz

This was a really fun show, not only to shoot but getting to hang out with a lot of really cool people during and after the show. The opening band, Sleepy Sun, was a bit “jam band” ‘ish for my tastes. They looked great and people seemed to be into them, but anyway, Arctic Monkeys came on a more than made up for it.

Afterwards I wandered over to Orpheum after some urging from my friends and checked out El Ten Eleven. I was really surprised, they were really good. They had really unique and interesting style. Although they sound quite differently from the songs I’ve found online, you should check them out next time they come through.

Update: I found this article on the Creative Loafing site which has this video, it kinda gives you some idea what they’re like.

Update 2: Check out the article on El Ten Eleven’s show on Creative Loafing’s music page.
