80’s Comedown machine is such a beautiful song. I’ve always wanted to hear it live, they did not disappoint.

Sure it was awesome as they always are.

But, if I were allowed to be nit-picky, the set-lists continue to be a bore, especially if you have seen multiple times.

Throw a curve-ball in there.

I really agree with you. They’re always awesome, and did play ’80’s’, but I did feel like they could’ve played not only a bigger set, but also a little less from Is This It, and focused on more recent albums. OWT, WTJ, Grastifaction, taken for a fool, YOLO, and so on…

Yeah I saw them at gov ball last summer and that was a fucking killer set list. This one is almost there but yeah if they could just switch out a couple of those ITI songs for some deeper cuts. Plus like a strokes show without YOLO or take it or leave it? That’s kinda crazy

Glad they played 80’s though. I still love comedown machine man. I will take that album over angles or any other strokes related project that’s come out since

80s comedown machine <3 beautiful

Loved hearing 80s Comedown Machine! I get why they play so many ISI songs. This is a huge audience, many of which are casual fans. They want to play their classic songs and also try to introduce people to the new stuff with Drag Queen, Threat of Joy, and 80s Comedown Machine. They haven’t been to Brazil since 2011? I think they’re playing to something like 50,000 people. That’s insane.

80’s is beautiful! they seem to be having a good time, i read somewhere there were 90,000 people that day, the crowd was huge

I love Is This It (song), but if you’re playing just 16 songs and another 8 from that record, I think it’s expendable. Same for Alone, Together. And TMA.

I hope they change the setlist for the next saturday. This one gotta be one of the worst of the last years.

I think part of why they are playing so much from Is This It is because Julian has kind of sonically returned to that style. Tyranny and the recent EP kind of saw Julian return to the grungier, growly, disinterested croon he had on the earlier albums. I think its a bit of a direction of where they are as a band. Notice they let out some of the more poppy songs like Japan. I don’t know probably just reading too much into things as usual :p

Father Electricty video is coming Monday 6pm. It’s premiering on cult’s website. According to their Facebook page

in this lion king song @ 2:08 it’s a total melodic rip from clearanace clear water revival’s looking out my backdoor
VVV Lion King (2:08)

CCR (@0:52)

I wonder how much modern music is actually ripped from classical music, probably a shit ton

13 Wes March 31, 2017 at 2:19 pm

Also listen to pink triangle by Weezer and Hard to Explain by TS. You will easily hear what the strokes “stole”. So dope

14 wilson April 1, 2017 at 6:30 am

That must have been just amazing to be there for that show!

The energy from the band and the crowd was intense.
Julian was the most engaging I’ve ever seen him be on stage with the Strokes.
he talked and improvised so much-very entertaining lol
But also sang so well.

Voidz news for those interested

Jake replied back to me about the clips he posted of Amir playing the violin
They are just part of their “Wednesday night jam sessions”
But when we asked if the Voidz have stuff for our future he replied “yes”

They sure are not rushing that second album

24 Ubu April 1, 2017 at 11:22 pm

Just came back from the show!! They were amazing, Julian was talking a lot and joking about argentinian stuff and how people here always sing along to every little guitar riff or solo.
Loved the show and the awesome (and unexpected) setlist
