The Strokes To Play New York's Governors Ball As Part Of Live Comeback

Monday, 07 January 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

The Strokes will perform together again for the first time in two years at New York City's Governors Ball this summer.

They will make a headline appearance at Randall's Island Park on June 2, with Tyler, the Creator topping the bill on the first day, May 31, and Florence and the Machine the next. Also booked to perform are SZA, Mitski, the 1975, Kacey Musgraves, Vince Staples, Nas, Major Lazer, Lil Wayne Brockhampton, the Internet, Playboi Carti, and more. In addition to the Strokes, who top Sunday's bill, vocalist Julian Casablancas’ the Voidz are also booked to perform on the Friday.

The announcement is part of the band's live return, after it was confirmed at the end of last year that Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr., Nick Valensi, Fabrizio Moretti, and Nikolai Fraiture will also perform as part of Spain's BBK Festival and Doctor Music Festival in July.

Further festival dates in Europe and the rest of the world are to be announced in the coming months.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.
I Feel Like We Only Just Got Here: How Hop Along Fell Into Place On 'Bark Your Head Off, Dog'

td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video.
