You know how when people get up in age, they can turn into a crazy old cat lady? Well I’m realizing that after 20 days of consecutively posting about old Strokes memorabilia for Strokes March Madness month, I’m in the danger zone for being the archetype “crazy old Strokes lady.” Despite that chilling possibility, I’m […]
Here’s yet another old shot of Julian Casablancas from the Hammerstein Ballroom Strokes show on October 31, 2001. Every day in for Strokes March Madness I’ll be posting something from my Strokes archive. Please tweet or FB like if you enjoy where this is going.

On November 29, 2001 The Strokes played a headlining show at a now defunct music venue on Long Island called The Vanderbilt. The openers were The Moldy Peaches and The Realistics and tickets were a whopping $16.50. According to a diary entry I wrote at the time, the crowd was very young due to the […]
