The Strokes Are Playing Madison Square Garden The Night Before LCD Soundsystem
So there you go. The Strokes' new album, Angles, will be out March 22 (hear the first single, "Under Cover of Darkness," here), and to celebrate they'll invade MSG the following week, just one night before the LCD Soundsystem show there that's got everyone pissed off. Just remember, Julian, that if the ticket-sales situation for this goes badly, you can't just play Terminal 5 four nights in a row beforehand to make it up to everyone.
Should you just now be learning that Mr. Casablancas is on Twitter, you might consider following him, as his feed also features stuff like, oh, say, a drawing of him clumsily holding several cups of coffee, with a cookie in his mouth, staring at Rachel Weisz. Observe:
So yeah, see you there.
