Live Tonight: Arctic Monkeys

When Arctic Monkeys first stepped out in the indie-rock realm with Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, its music felt like a precursor to the quirky guitar jams that fans would later learn to love from groups like Vampire Weekend. Arctic Monkeys could’ve been a fad band, but along the way they came across Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, and were never the same; he helped it evolve into the grimy and greasy group it is today. With the Distincts. Through Tuesday. The Paramount, 911 Pine Street, 877-784-4849, 8 p.m. $39–$43. All ages. DH
