Julian Casablancas Fords The Hudson, Covers The Boss, Loses No Oxen







Though we're very fond of The Strokes, we haven't been at all pleased with the bad news regarding their next record's progress. It's sort of alright though because their frontman's been playing a few of their old standards out on his solo tour at the moment. Segue! Mr. Casablancas covered The Boss' "Dancing In The Dark" last night at The Pageant in St. Louis, and interestingly, the lyrics to this classic actually have a much more "rough around the edges" feeling of despair than we remember hearing the first time our dad put it in the cassette player. In a way, the song totally fits Jules and the way he stalks a stage: he took Bruce's smalltown streets booty-call and finally made it a wolf in wolf's clothing. Sheep are so 2009.
