ROCK | Arctic Monkeys 

Arctic Monkeys lead singer Alex Turner is a bit of a word wizard. His lyrical poetry has helped elevate the Sheffield, England, group to major festival headliners. The group's latest album, "Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino," has a different destination in mind: the moon. It trades in the rock-heavy riffs of hits "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" and "Do I Wanna Know?" for tunes about a lunar hotel with a taqueria on the roof. Listening to this record makes me feel like a film noir space detective who traces all the clues to a seedy rocket ship lounge — where the Arctic Monkeys just happen to be crushing it. This shouldn't work, but absolutely does.

Arctic Monkeys, with opening act Mini Mansions, performs Wednesday, July 25, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive. 8 p.m. $25-$65.
