The Strokes set to play free show at SXSW 2011
The Strokes are returning after a long six year hiatus, and many various side projects from each of the bands five members with the release of “Angels” set for March 22nd. As a warm up for their announced festival appearances this summer the band will be playing a free show at SXSW on March 17 at the Auditorium Shores Stage (at Lady Bird Lake).
The show is open to the public thanks to a sponsorship deal from Levi’s. Being a free open to the public show pretty much guarantees that the turnout for this show will be huge so plan accordingly if you are in Austin March 17. For those of you that are stuck at home there is a silver lining, as part of their sponsorship deal Levi’s will provide footage of the show the day after it goes down.
