Julian Casablancas may have turned in a less-than lovable version of “Vision of Division” at Primavera Sound this weekend, but his mainstay outfit pulled out all the stops for their own show. The Strokes headlined the Barcelona festival on Saturday, marking the band’s first European show since Reading and Leeds in 2011.

The band made up for lost time with a career-spanning 18 song set. Highlights included “One Way Trigger” and “All the Time”, which marked the first time either song had been performed from a European stage. They also played both “Juicebox” and “The Modern Age” for the first time anywhere since 2011, according to
