The Strokes to Play Free Show in Austin

Photographer Phil Knott

We wrote about The Strokes when they were on the verge of being "almost famous" in 2001, put them on their very first magazine cover. Ten years, a hiatus and Gossip Girl appearance later, the quintessential NYC band of the last decade is back, and they're playing a free show at SXSW's Auditorium Shores Stage (at Lady Bird Lake) on Thursday, March 17th. The Levi's-sponsored show will be free and open to the public.

The show should be fun and a great opportunity to wax nostalgic about FADERS past. But we're also psyched for the present. See you in Texas! See the boys many-years younger, after the jump!
