Watch Strokes Play Warm-Up Gig In Camden

The Strokes are in it for the money, but that doesn’t mean their first show since 2006 isn’t kind of a big deal. The band played a secret warm up in London (under the name Venison) to prepare for their June 12 headlining spot at the Isle of Wight festival. According to NME, they did an 18-song set, but played no new material (they’ve been working on a new record since 2PM on February 11, 2009). Watch the band do “New York City Cops,” “Is This It,” and “Juicebox” below:
