“Happy Fucking Halloween”: The Strokes’ 2003 Halloween Show (NOV. 1 UPDATE)

by Eric Van Dril · 15 comments

UPDATE: I’ve uploaded all 16 songs from the Tsongas show and they can be found at the end of this post. More importantly, however, here’s what two Strokes did on Halloween…

Nick and his wife went as a chicken and a cat.

And then, there’s Julian and his fantastic Death Star pumpkin…

UPDATE OVER

Since there isn’t shit going on with The Strokes, a Halloween-themed post will have to do.

I have A LOT of Strokes bootlegs because, well, I write a fansite about The Strokes.

A lot of these bootlegs aren’t worth a shit, but one of the few (there are five — including Lollapalooza and Outside Lands Melbourne Festival Hall from this year — in my rotation) is from a Halloween show in 2003. The show¬† — posted by Hanan — is from Tsongas Arena in Massachusetts and is one of the bootlegs to which I always return.

So if you’re sitting at home on Halloween night and haven’t heard this, check it out.
