Video: The Strokes Live at Stubbs (UPDATED)

by Eric Van Dril · 44 comments

Update: Bob is a boss and came through with high-quality videos and has properly stuck The Strokes needle back in my arm. Here are the videos with YOLO up first.

Update over.

Here are a couple videos from Wednesday night’s Stubbs show, which I found from this Twitter account.

I almost died twice. The people in the middle/front were crazy! And so was the guy that almost fell on my from the balcony! Other than that, it was pretty awesome, and they all seemed to be having a good time (The Strokes, that is).

I saw that guy trying to climb up. Security had a hard time pulling him up to safety. For a while there I thought he was going to fall down. Loved the show except for the fact that they only played like 15+ songs and the whole waiting for 2hrs for the band to come out as well. Crowds at The Strokes concert always seem to get crazy and last night(Ha) was no exception. Great show, would have been cool if they did play Hawaii.

3 Speedy October 7, 2010 at 9:46 am

i get to see them tomorrow!!!!

4 Becky October 7, 2010 at 10:48 am

I am totally perplexed. Tonight was my first Strokes show. The Strokes were exactly what I’d imagined, but their fans were not at all. Let me get this out there…I’m 30. Am I the oldest living Strokes fan? Am I the oldest person who writes on here? There were a lot of people around me tonight with braces. Braces! And people were crowd surfing! I know I am old, but seriously, I go to plenty of shows, and I certainly have not witnessed crowd surfing since 1993. For real. I honestly just feel right now like let’s get this ACL festival bullshit over on Friday so I can go back to Minneapolis & go to Guided by Voices at First Ave. And so help me God, if one person at that show has braces, I don’t even know what I’m going to do.

5 Bob October 7, 2010 at 11:26 am

Heres another good video from the show, I think it is much better than the “Take It Or Leave It” vid already posted, plus there is a good shot of someone running on stage at the 1:25 mark and attempting to sing backing vocals…

Becky! You are not alone! I’m 31…and have been listening to them since 2001. Which means I was old enough to purchase alcohol when I became a lover of all things The Strokes…and could thoroughly enjoy every song and lyric and be able to understand what they are talking about. Love, drinking, and all that shit.

It was amazing. I was in front of Albert. The crowd was rough but it was so worth it. They played for probably an hour total, so people complained. But the real fans appreciate the opportunity to be at the first public Strokes show (not festival or private TH party) in the US in 4 years. I know I did. It was unreal.

9 Eric Van Dril October 7, 2010 at 12:21 pm

@Becky — I’m 23 and I’ve been immersed within this community for probably three or four years and I always feel like I’m the oldest person. I saw Julian in April and there were a ton of young kids — high school and college. When I saw The Strokes at Lollapalooza there were more people my age, but not too much older. So, to answer your question, you probably are the oldest Strokes fan. Sorry.

10 Becky October 7, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Fine. You young people can have The Strokes. But only if you promise to cherish the fuck out of them! We didn’t have The Strokes when I was growing up, and we had to listen to like…Cat Stevens and Duran Duran.
Where do aging hipsters go to die? Guided by Voices concerts? Probably a safe space.
I thought I told you, this world is not for you.
I like it right here, but I cannot stay.
Oh my beautiful NYC boys…what ever happened?

11 Steph October 7, 2010 at 2:45 pm

Just saw Albert and Nickolai on 6th st. (separately). Both looking super cool, of course! It’s been a good day.

Yeah I wished they would’ve played Hawaii…Julian was such a tease by saying they would play it even though he didn’t know the words. And I noticed that a ton of the people there were underage as well!

12 mrg77 October 7, 2010 at 2:56 pm

@Becky
Nope, not the oldest, I’m 33 and I LOVE the fuck outta those guys! The show was AMAZING Last Nite, I got “caught up” in the front center “swaying” I was litteraly lifted outta my shoes and off the ground! I don’t mind, it’s true :) The STROKES are AMAZING; and they are, after all, FUCKING ROCK STARS, so what did everyone expect? If u TRULY are a Strokes fan, then you will appreciate Last Nite for what it was; truly SPECTACULAR Rock n Roll carnage!!!!!!

13 mrg77 October 7, 2010 at 2:57 pm

@Steph
Where did you see them? Im heading down to 6th Street in like 30

14 Bob October 7, 2010 at 3:32 pm

15 andrew October 7, 2010 at 4:25 pm

@Becky – You’re the most entertaining strokes fan – sometimes I come on here just to read your comments! Please don’t abandon your fandom just because of some braces-wearing hipsters bopping their way through the gig. I’m 27 and I’ve loved the strokes since they first came to London. The band themselves are in their early thirties so i think you’re on the perfect wavelength to be liking them at 30.

16 andrew October 7, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Gigs can be age-specific but music rarely is.

17 Becky October 7, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m posting again, but Austin has little to offer a vegetarian teetotaler.

Killer. I have a groupie. And my husband said I was wasting my life on strokesnews.com. Wait, should one admit to having a husband right after discovering one has a groupie?

Holy shit, I am bored. I’m going to be done with the book I started yesterday while waiting and waiting and waiting at Stubbs. But I did enjoy listening to Bob Marley and The Doors on the PA. Thanks, Jules!

18 mrg77 October 7, 2010 at 6:01 pm

@Becky-Yeah, the “elevator” music was pretty badass!

19 Steph October 7, 2010 at 7:10 pm

Met all the dudes at their hotel (we were eating there, not stalking….it was all by chance, i swear!). They were all super nice, and Julian did something to his foot….didn’t say what though. Anywho, they were all together and headed down 6th street together. So any rumor of them not being friends is seemingly untrue.

20 hello October 7, 2010 at 9:24 pm

Found this funny video of Julian after the show :) http://youtu.be/BrwWfhgl7wE

21 ester October 7, 2010 at 11:04 pm

@Becky – LOL. I’m 33, and have been desperately trying to find Strokes lovers amongst my friends…to no avail. I’ve resorted to making them listen to their CDs so they’ll fall in love by the time they tour their next record. For now, I guess I’ll have to settle with my 4- and 1.5-year-olds rocking out to the Strokes every day.

22 sharon October 8, 2010 at 5:10 am

@Ester and Becky im 33, i do find it frightening how young some of these kids are although i think its good they have found The Strokes and i do love The Strokes.

23 ester October 8, 2010 at 9:31 am

@sharon – I think the fact that they have die-hard fans spanning decades is a testament to how timeless their music is.

24 Speedy October 8, 2010 at 9:26 pm

i saw them today :))))) my first time…

25 Eric Van Dril October 8, 2010 at 9:35 pm

@Speedy — Tell me about it.

And, for the record, I had no idea anybody who read or participated in this site was married or had kids. That blew my mind, but also makes me happy.

26 alanna October 8, 2010 at 10:48 pm

hey eric, i was perusing the strokes wikipedia site just for kicks and in the 4th album section, it says, “On October 5th,2010, during a interview with NME Julian stated that the album is about 75% finished and the album should surprise many people in a good way.” … i know wikipedia isn’t exactly mr. reliable, but that’s a little weird right? of course the interview is no where to be found on NME’s website. anyway, just wondering if that’s completely made up or if there’s something to it.

27 sharon October 9, 2010 at 2:23 am

@ester yes it is
@alanna i think i remember reading that interview,dont know if NME made any of it up tho.Sounds more like the interview he did with them when he was promoting Phrazes, i think he said they’d knock it out the park (actually i think that maybe 2 seperate interviews)

28 Speedy October 9, 2010 at 10:00 am

its HARD TO EXPLAIN it without using superlatives. “awesome” just doesnt cut it! i felt like i was the only real fan in the crowd, the people around me didnt know any songs except Reptilia!
so i get there like at 5 & the crowd was already huge but i got a pretty good place for 50,000? people…i didnt wanna take videos because it doesnt help me concentrate so much on the real event…but i did & i will upload them as soon as i get home!

29 Becky October 9, 2010 at 11:29 am

Greetings from the road. I’m writing this from a gas station in lovely Buttfuck, OK. ACL crowd was WAY lame. Hilarious that I bitch about Stubbs kids being too rowdy & then am pissed when poseurs are boring. Festivals suck for fans. No more.
The show, they played stuff not in the reg rotaysh. Like I twoat, I think this was I can’t win, definitely trying your luck, and evening sun.
I am happy to report that the boys were way, way happy. When the strokes are happy, I’m happy. Jules was being hilarious. Singing thundercats. Asking who exactly keeps messing with Texas. Calling himself an asshole for wearing sunglasses at night. But they were very happy. I think I saw Jules tickle Albert at one point.
I think it’s all really good signs. I think were in for an excellent strokes iv. I know Julian jokes about calling this album buddies, but I think it’s apt. The band is gelling again fo sho.
The boys are back!

30 Steph October 9, 2010 at 2:32 pm

Speedy and Becky- I totally agree. The fans around me were pretty lame. None of them were singing along to any of the lesser-known songs. As Becky said, the dudes seemed SUPER happy, and there was some quality Julian banter. He is so hilarious! I thought it was really cool that they played some different songs (Evening Sun, Trying Your Luck, Between Love and Hate)…though they didn’t play The Modern Age or Heart in a Cage. I really hope someone will post Julian’s laughing fit on Youtube- when they were all leaving the stage for the encore, Julian just stayed onstage laughing….he explained that at the Stubb’s show, when they left for the encore the crowd got really quiet (which is true) and they apparently thought it was funny. So they all came back onstage and decided not to leave before the encore. It was just really funny how it happened. At one point Nick had his arm around Albert- wish I had gotten a pic of that.

31 Becky October 9, 2010 at 2:38 pm

I wish someone less flaky than me could come up with last night’s set list. YOLO, last nite, someday, reptilia, NYCC, VoD?, the stuff I mentioned before, take or leave it closer. That’s all I got.

32 John October 9, 2010 at 3:47 pm

30,31 years old… definitely not the oldest strokes fan, i have seen a guy in his 50’s in the middle of the crowd at strokes shows (the same guy at multiple shows – easy to recognize the only white haired older man in the audience).

When I saw Julian here in New York a few months back at T5, i thought the same thing about the young crowd (i am 28), but at the same time, i had brought my 21 year old brother and his friend with me.

I don’t think this band could really be attached to any particular age group… that is a good thing.

33 Rola October 12, 2010 at 11:14 am

Hey! Lets get The Strokes on The Simpsons!! Go to http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Strokes-on-The-Simpsons/167057543304555?v=info, “Like” it, and sign the petition! Then spread the word! Together, we can change both Strokes and Simpsons history!

34 zmargi October 13, 2010 at 11:53 am

BOTH shows were K!CK@SS!!! Stubbs was CRAZY-I got a BROKEN toe, and was BRUISED UP; head to toe. The intimacy of the venue was SOOOOO nice, felt like “back in the day” when they FIRST came out. I drove 1100 miles just to see them at Stubb’s, and after ALL the drama, was still worth it. If that weren’t enough (it was), I actually met FaB at their hotel. Fab is SO laid-back, gracious, and affectionate. He told us a neat little story about him and Albert at a Weezer concert. He asked if we were going to ACL, BEFORE i can even say no, he went over to Ricahrd Priest and told him to put us on the list. We were PERSONAL vip guests of The STROKES!!!! Was the BEST nites of my life!!!!! And I have The STROKES to thank for it!!!!

35 Luna December 27, 2010 at 10:58 am

I am 36 and I adore the strokes just like a lot of my friends who are a little older or younger than me. The strokes music is one those things that stay with you forever. There’s no way you can like them when you are young and not like them when you “grow up”. I am sure there are a lot of fans my age and older around the world that we don’t know of, because most likely they wont take the time to get online and post comments about the strokes. I accidentally ran into this website myself and thought I would share my undying love for the strokes, even though I am 36…cheers!!

The difference between a label prominence cure-all and a generic entire is in the nominate, fashion and in the price. A generic cure-all is inveterately called before the name of the active ingredient while a maker uses a marque name. But, a industrialist cannot endowed with a flagrant for a invariable chemical agent, this is why manufacturers of generic medications can legally produce the soi-disant “generics”.

The dissimilitude between a marque prominence pharmaceutical and a generic sole is in the specify, fashion and in the price. A generic drug is inveterately called by the rank of the dynamic ingredient while a fabricator uses a sort name. Come what may, a producer cannot dominated by a patent for the treatment of a invariable chemical factor, this is why manufacturers of generic medications can legally extrude the called “generics”.
