The Strokes are back in a big way. Before they play Governors Ball, a performance being presented as their long-awaited hometown reunion following years of internal conflicts — we’re thinking about those solo efforts from frontman Julian Casablancas and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., as well as a slew of records that didn’t live up to their early reputation as saviors of post-punk LES glam rock — you can catch the New York fivesome at an intimate engagement in Port Chester tonight. Considering that the presale tickets were gone in less than a minute, it’s clear fans of the band haven’t been deterred by anyone who dares to say the Strokes are over. Don’t miss the chance to hear classics like “New York City Cops” and “Last Nite” performed in one of the nation’s most iconic venues.
