The Strokes returned the stage at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre on Monday night. It marked only the band’s second performance of 2016 and first since the release of their surprise EP, Future Present Past. It also served as a warm-up show ahead of the band’s headlining appearance at this weekend’s Governors Ball Music Festival.
The 16-song setlist included all three tracks from the new EP, specifically “Threat of Joy”, “OBLIVIUS”, and “Drag Queen”. The Strokes also dusted off “Electricityscape” for the first time since its initial release on 2006’s First Impressions of Earth. “Soma” also popped up on the band’s setlist after six years.
Above, watch footage of the band performing “Threat of Joy” live for the first time. Video of “OBLIVIUS”, “Drag Queen”, and “Reptilia” can be found below. The setlist, too.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vWCOO0MVgc
