Arctic Monkeys tomorrow at the Dise

A few days ago I took one of those "5 Things You Hate That Everyone Else Loves" surveys on Facebook, and added my usual serving of Vanya-evs: beer, coffee, the Beatles, college sports and anything involving CSI/Law & Order. But I could have easily noted the Arctic Monkeys, who perform Jimmy Fallon tonight and hit the Paradise RC in Boston tomorrow night.

I never get hooked on that "You Look Good..." jam, and they seemingly didn't have anything left in the tank thereafter, despite what I hear is a pretty raucous and kickass live show. Meh, it just never moved me. But the Arctics new song, "Crying Lightning," is pretty snappy the video is fun to watch. More after the jump...

So perhaps I'll give them a shake tomorrow night, especially since the Drums acted like bitches and demanded last minute financial "travel considerations" for their one-ticket-sold-in-advance Great Scott gig and ultimately cancelled on us. And despite Apache Stone in town (LOLz), the Arctics' sold-out gig looks like the place to be. Here's their tour lineup, all in support of new album "Humbug":
