Arctic Monkeys EndSession at Seattle Drum School

Aug 13th | categories: Awesome, Endsession, Live, Music

Alex Turner and Matt Helders of the Arctic Monkeys along with keyboardist Tom Rowley walked into the dimly lit Seattle Drum School early Tuesday afternoon and treated a group of approximately 40 fans and staff to what turned out to be one of the greatest EndSessions I've witnessed.

It is indisputable truth that the Arctic Monkeys are a cool band. They stepped up the cool factor by a massive amount in my book during the EndSession. Alex Turner told me that he had heard 107.7 The End likes for bands to do a cover song during EndSessions. This was affirmed by a confident "yeah!" from an audience member when Alex later asked the crowd if it was true.

They did some homework to find an artist to cover with a Seattle connection that would work well with their style. He learned from an internet search that Father John Misty had spent a lot of time in Seattle so they chose him to cover. Hearing the Arctic Monkeys play 'Only Son Of A Ladies Man' gave me goose bumps. I can't describe how great it was, you'll just have to wait for the video to come out to see for yourself. For now, check out some photos from the EndSession.
