Big set, big sound: Arctic Monkeys bound for the big time

By Patrick MacDonald
Seattle Times rock critic


Arctic Monkeys, Voxtrot, Saturday night at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle


More like 500-pound gorillas.

Arctic Monkeys opened with a wham of a song Saturday night at the Paramount, filling the place with the white-hot intensity of the slamming "This House Is A Circus."

And the young lads from the UK stayed at that bracing level of high-powered energy, intricate interplay and searing lyrics through an impressive 15-song set. The big crowd matched them in intensity, dancing wildly and breaking out in frequent moshing and crowd-surfing.

Last time the Monkeys played here, in March 2006, it was in the close confines of the Crocodile Cafe. Their finely honed musicianship, tight arrangements, smart lyrics and authority onstage, especially on the part of lead singer Alex Turner, were impressive then.

Now it's apparent that Arctic Monkeys had bigger plans. They've developed into an arena act, with a sound and show much too big for nightclubs. Sometimes the elaborate lighting effects were almost too big for the Paramount, but all the busy brightness never distracted from the outstanding music and performances.
