Niko on the fifth record: “Some people are bringing in stuff, some people are not.” There are also a lot of ITI questions, which I like.
Unfortunately, Flippaut turned out to be the The Strokes’ most disappointing festival experience of the year. And that has nothing to do with the band’s performance.
The Strokes were forced to stop playing after around 10 songs because of repeated power failures. The typical reaction seems to be, as Francesca said on Twitter: “yeah i’m with my friends and we’re all SO FUCKING SAD!!i mean, i love the strokes, i’ve wait for 6 years to see them…”
The worst part is that tonight’s setlist was one of the best I’ve seen from The Strokes. Plus, they played Alone, Together, according to Ryan.
