On Tuesday we flew up to Wellington for the Arctic Monkey's gig at the Wellington Town Hall. It was their first gig in about a year. I saw them at the St James in Auckland in 2006. It was another great high energy performance with 4 new songs debuted - 'Dangerous Animals', 'Pretty Visitors', 'Would You Like Me To Build You A Go-Kart?' and 'Crying Lightning'. The new songs were good. The sound mixing was a bit crap but the band was tight. They're not as fresh-faced and raw as the last time i saw them. They played a cover of Nick Cave's 'Red Right Hand'.
Before the gig we passed the band walking up Cuba Street as we were heading down for a kebab at Abracadabra.
