Update: Watch The Strokes here. Updated

The Strokes will play for approximately 40 minutes at Saturday’s KROQ Weenie Roast and you can watch on KROQ’s website where they will be broadcasting the show via UStream.

I’ll repost this on Saturday and provide a direct link to the webcast.

The Strokes, after headlining Coachella, Lollapalooza, Isle of Wight and several other festivals, are now just appetizers for Linkin Park, the main course. The lineup is as follows…


Bud Light Side Stage
2:00pm Young The Giant
2:30pm Foster The People
3:00pm Lykke Li
3:30pm Airborne Toxic Event
4:00pm Neon Trees

Main Stage
5:15pm Face To Face
5:45pm A Day To Remember
6:15pm Cage The Elephant
6:50pm Bad Religion
7:30pm The Strokes
8:10pm Rise Against
9:30pm Linkin Park

If you could build your own personal lineup out of the bands listed above, what would it be?

4 Erik C May 31, 2011 at 8:18 pm

5 Bernardo R. May 31, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Alright thanks a lot(:
im super psyched for another stream, maybe they’ll play some songs out of their usual setlist, maybe like Trying Your Luck, or maybe im just trying my own luck.

what’s that uk time?

8 adam June 1, 2011 at 12:04 pm

Don’t know Rise Against, but Linkin Park is an awful, awful band. The Strokes should be insulted to have to go on before them.

9 BobtheMan June 1, 2011 at 12:55 pm

The Strokes Ellen performance!!

12 KEVIN June 1, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Thanks Eric for the tip on this stream and all other streams and videos you’ve posted here!! I think I speak for everyone when I say THANK YOU for all of your hard work!

13 adam June 1, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Bad Religion can stay.

14 Yuko June 1, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Cage the Elephant is pretty awesome, too! I just saw them last week and their stage presence is amazing!

15 heather June 1, 2011 at 9:18 pm

My line-up:

The Strokes.

That’s pretty much it.

16 Kimdiy June 4, 2011 at 6:51 pm

the live feed is actually pretty good. surprised that cage the elephant didn’t have more people in the crowd at the beginning. super excited to see them at lolla…strokes in less than an hour woohoo!!!
thanks eric, you da man 🙂

17 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:30 pm

I am the man, Kimdiy. I am.

18 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:32 pm

Spending a night with The Strokes at a Weenie Roast. Anybody else watching?

19 Matt June 4, 2011 at 7:34 pm

live streams fucking up for me but shit REPTILIA

20 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:39 pm

UCoD now. More than two months removed from the Angles leak, this remains the album’s best song. Right?

21 Bernardo R. June 4, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Anyone else loving the fact that Nick is using his ol’ Riviera 😀

22 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:43 pm

@Bernardo — Doesn’t the Riviera sound excellent tonight?

23 Matt June 4, 2011 at 7:45 pm

id be able to give my opinion if this stream wasnt so fucking inconsistent!

24 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:46 pm

H2E and now Juicebox. My feed just cut out 🙁

25 woon June 4, 2011 at 7:53 pm

my streams fine. mic problems in reptilia
one of the boys fucked up in H2E
julian forgot his words many times, but thats par for the course these days
crowd seems a bit flat

26 woon June 4, 2011 at 7:55 pm

a little off topic, but since there isnt a forum… chance of strokes being the secret appearance at glastonbury? would time in with their euro dates

thoi guess
killers, foo fighters, flaming lips, arctic monkeys, arcade fire, and pulp could also be in he running

27 Alucius June 4, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Am I the only one who thinks You’re So Right is one of the weaker songs of Angles, but one of the strongest in their live performances?

28 woon June 4, 2011 at 7:58 pm

i think thats the general opinion, on album its just filler, live its something to get excited about

glad to see the return of you only live once

29 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 7:59 pm

@Alucius — Yes, the production of YSR on the record isn’t the greatest. But it kicks ass live.

@woon — I’d say it’s possible. Are you going?

YOLO sounds good…

30 Eric Van Dril June 4, 2011 at 8:00 pm

I’ve been hearing rumblings that they’re going to shoot a video for TFAF sometime soon.

31 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:00 pm

ye im gonna be there, hope its either stroke or arctics, i hate the idea of waitig around to see who it is, and kasabian showing up

and ouch the end of you only live once was EEEEK bad

32 Carolyn June 4, 2011 at 8:02 pm

is it just me or is taken for a fool sounding better than usual?

33 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:04 pm

oh god takn for a fool was the albums real grower, but as i hear it live more n more, i hate it more n more, sooo bad 🙁
a chorus in search of a verse

34 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:06 pm

carolyn i would have agreed, until that last bit haha

i feel bad for jules today, i feel like hes really trying and he just cant seem to hit the notes and u can see it frustrating him

35 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:09 pm

the kroq team are embarasing haha

36 Kimdiy June 4, 2011 at 8:11 pm

I actually thought he was sounding really good until the mic problems and then it just seemed too distracting for him possibly and things were up and down from there. fucking mic!!

37 Carolyn June 4, 2011 at 8:12 pm

True, some parts were a little off. And YOLO was a little rough.

I don’t know, I’ve never seen the Strokes live, but I have a feeling that if they played their own shows in a regular tour that maybe they’d be little more ON? Not sure though, what do you guys think?

38 Ben June 4, 2011 at 8:13 pm

I thought he was back on his game after the Ellen performance. Its so weird how hit or miss his vocal performances are.

39 Ben June 4, 2011 at 8:14 pm

@Caroyln, I think that’s a lot of the issue, and the fact they aren’t rehearsing as obsessively as they used to.

40 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:16 pm

yeah wen they were touring playing every day they were just on it, it was effortless
plus doing thee festival shows, and now at a point where theyre not main headliner
theyre limited to only an hour so theres always gonna be songs u wish theyd played

where in an hr and a half set they could get through pretty much all the ones u wanna hear
tho id say todays se was more balanced than the radio 1 one the other week, fair balance from all albums (apart from room on fire sadly)

whats everyones fave song theyre playing atm?
what song would you drop from the set?
and what song that they havent played this year do u wish they would?

41 woon June 4, 2011 at 8:20 pm

anyone notice duin reptilia, he made point of getting the lyrics right after the fench tv fuck up
i think hes aware, n u can see the effort again, just seemed like he just couldnt contrll his vocals today, needs to wet the pipes

42 Carolyn June 4, 2011 at 8:32 pm

to your questions:
1.the modern age- did they play it tonight? didn’t see the whole thing. idea, it’s just nice to hear anything from them these days
3.tie between trying your luck, 12:51, and of course machu picchu

didn’t hear reptilia, but it’s good to hear he put some effort into it.

43 Ben June 5, 2011 at 12:02 am


1) You Only Live Once.
2) I wouldn’t mind if they dropped You’re So Right. I agree with a lot of people on here that it’s better live than on the record, but it’s still a weak song.
3) Someday. That song, along with Last Nite, made me fall in love with the band when the first record came out. It’s one of their best and, correct me if I’m wrong, they haven’t been playing it much recently, if at all.
