Last nite

Multiple EVG readers mentioned seeing the ad Friday night and last night for the upcoming (surprise?) Strokes record being projected on the above building on Second Avenue at First Street. (H/T @GramPeder!) The projector was atop Avalon Bowery Place across East Houston.

As several music sites noted, the band posted a video clip featuring artwork for the new project apparently taken from a 1981 Jean-Michel Basquiat piece titled "Bird on Money"...

The band last released a studio album in 2013.

The Strokes now popping up on the Bowery

The Strokes have a new EP out on Friday, when they also headline the Governors Ball on Randall's Island.

Ahead of all this, the band (and Cult Records, the label run by frontman Julian Casablancas) opened a pop-up shop today at 350 Bowery between Great Jones and East Fourth Street.

The shop, open noon to 9 p.m. (except Thursday night, when there's a listening party for the new EP) through Sunday, is selling the band's previous records and other merchandise... there are also some DJ sets planned... not to mention an espresso bar by Everyman Espresso.

You can listen to a new track from the EP here...

And this is from 2013...

At the star-studded secret Strokes show?

Twitter is alive with reports of the new Strokes single. This isn't it. Something about the clothes and hair though... I think the Strokes owe it all to Leif Garrett.

Albert Hammond Jr. finds someone else to buy his Third Street apartment

Cityfile has the story. Because he is your favorite Stroke. Or Fab. Maybe Nick? And it's OK if you say Julian. Or Nikolai.
