Between Albert Hammond doing “One Way Trigger” and Julian Casablancas doing “Take It Or Leave It,” there have been more live covers of Strokes songs by members of the Strokes than there has been actual Strokes news of late. But today, the Strokes announced a show that will act as a warm-up for their performance at Governors Ball: They will be performing a set at the 1800-seat Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on Sunday, May 31. It will be the Strokes’ first show in three years. Tickets go on sale this Friday at noon EST, and my guess is they will be sold out in about .5 seconds, but you can try to cop ‘em here.
