Arctic Monkeys. Where: Sheffield Boardwalk When: May 26, 2005 Why it was great: They were still unsigned but were about to self-release 'Five Minutes With...'. That night marked the point where Sheffield could no longer contain its prodigal sons; the secret was out. Every song sounded like the classic it was soon to become.
