The Killers — a band some called The Mormon Strokes back in the day — covered The Strokes’ ‘Is This It’ at an SNL after party The Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night. Here’s the video, via @strokestrivia…
I can’t wait for the Strokes to return the favor and cover a Killers track. Which song do you think The Strokes will cover? My vote is on Human, simply because I want to hear Jules sing that ridiculous “Are we human, or are we dancer” line.

Reader Tannk — or Josh, as I like to call him — ran into Nikolai at the Har Mar show last night.
I’ll let him explain the rest…
I am at the Har Mar show in NYC and met Har mar and talked to him
For a while.. He’s super chill..
I was walking to the Bathroom and ran into Nikolai!!!
I talked to him for a while and he’s sooo nice.
I said I was disapointed they didn’t tour after CM and he said he said was too.
I also asked about new music and he said they will be recording in June.
Har Mar and Nikolai both said Jules may be coming later so I hope I can meet him too!
This is the best night of my life! I’m so happy to finally meet a stroke after being a fan since day 1 and NYC resident my whole life.
I got a picture with Nikolai that I will show you guys later..

Tweet The last time we saw/heard Julian Casablancas interviewed was in 2011 as the Strokes wrapped up their tour. But that changed this morning, as Julian recently granted a rare interview to Cult Records artist Har Mar Superstar — of course, right? — who has a podcast titled Nocturnal Emotions. The description says the pair’s lengthy [...]
Tweet Here’s Daft Punk, on working with Julian Casablancas (via @shesfixing). French first, then the English translation… Julian Casablancas des Strokes le chante. Nous sommes tous les deux super fans et nous avons appris qu’il voulait nous rencontrer. On avait cette démo qui traînait, il est venu, il a écouté et il était à fond [...]
