VIDEO: The Strokes play their first show in years

THE STROKES went on hiatus four years ago after First Impressions of Earth and each member did his own thing for a while. But now they're back: they'll be playing festivals like Lollapalooza and the Isle of Wight, and they are currently recording a new studio album scheduled to be released in September. Julian Casablancas has been pretty upfront in interviews about the fact that the band are only really doing this for some cash (which hardly makes them unique among recent reunions - Frank Black and Stephen Malkmus both said similar things about their bands' respective reunions). Frankly, if it sounds this good, they can do whatever they want. Lesser-quality video below. (Hat tip here and here.)
