Stray Cats played The Rooftop at Pier 17 with James Hunter (pics, video, setlist)

Rockabilly vets and Massapequa, Long Island natives Stray Cats reunited for their first show in 9 years in 2018, and earlier this year they announced their first album in over 20 years, 40, and their first tour in a decade to support it. That tour hit The Rooftop at Pier 17 in NYC on Wednesday night (8/7), for a show that found the band sounding as good as ever, running through their many hits (including “Rock This Town,” “Runaway Boys,” and “Stray Cat Strut”), a handful of covers, and some new material, as well.

James Hunter opened Wednesday night’s show, and you can check out pictures of he and Stray Cats in the gallery above, as well as video and setlist from Stray Cats below.
