The Strokes played Capitol Theatre, share “Drag Queen” video, playing GovBall tonight ++ NYC pop-up shop
The Strokes performed at Port Chester's Capitol Theatre on Tuesday night (5/31), marking their first live performance since the release of their surprise EP, Future Present Past and second live performance of 2016. The band played the entirety of their new EP and they dusted off some oldes, like "Soma" (first time since 2010) and “Electricityscape” (first time in 10 years!). Setlist, videos and Instagrams from the Capitol Theater show are below.
The Cap show served as a warmup for the band's Governors Ball performance tonight (6/3). If you can't make it to Gov Ball, the concert will stream live on VICELAND, Vice's cable station, tonight at 9:15 PM. (NYC Time Warner subscribers, that's channel 133.) Meanwhile The Strokes just released an animated lyric video for the new EP's "Drag Queen," directed by Kidmograph and Gustavo Torres. Check that out below.
Finally if you're in NYC, The Strokes and Cult Records have a pop-up shop this week located at 350 Bowery (at E. 3rd St) that's open from from 12-9 PM daily through June 5. There are records, merch and an espresso bar.
