On the same day as the new Strokes album was released, "Angles", the rebel boys from New York continue to keep tradition alive by performing their first televised gigs in their home state. Although, on their last two goes with the records, "First Impressions Of Earth" and "Room On Fire" found the boys performing a few stints on the now defunct NBC late night show w/ Conan O'Brien (has since switched coasts & can now be seen on TBS). The Strokes have now set camp on The David Letterman Show powerfully ripping through a never performed tune, "Taken For A Fool" off the new record. Dig all the rocking ruckus above.

+ezra turner it's just that fabrizio got the drumming wrong like repeated at the end so he sang radio ending so that they all know when to finish, fab kinda messed up but most didnt notice
He was better here than some other live performances.

they were supposed to end the song sooner as indicated by Julian "radio endinggg" lol but Fab completed the song as on the album.
What? How did he mess up? I thought it was just Julian messing up a bit.
