Who the Fuck are Arctic Monkeys?

I love going to concerts and this time I went to the Arctic Monkeys. The Eagles of Death Metal were the support act and I wasn't really wowed by them, their songs kinda sounded the same to me. They did have quite some fans though, I saw a few guys sporting fake handlebar mustaches and sunglasses, trying to look like the frontman. Now on to the Arctic Monkeys, who were amazing. The Arctic Monkeys are often criticized for their lack of stage presence, but I felt that wasn't the case on Wednesday, they were in a pretty good mood. The sound was incredible, especially with Matt pounding away on the drums. A cool part was during 'Secret Door', when two confetti cannons were blasted off (I guess I have a thing for confetti). Although I have to confess that the loud bang made my heart jump a little...
