The Strokes will perform at the inaugural City Of Angels Benefit Concert on 7/25, which will be the band’s only LA show of 2016. The concert will take place at the Wiltern, which is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, and proceeds will go to three charities that benefit the homeless in LA: The Center In Hollywood, Waste Not Want Not Now, and Downtown Women’s Center. Julian Casablancas made the following statement about the show in a press release:
Homelessness and mental health are big issues in LA and we’re happy to do a little something that can hopefully help a bit. The Center in Hollywood and Waste Not Want Not Now are great, well-intentioned and trustworthy charities doing wonderful work.
