We caught one of the free SXSW concerts last night with The Strokes, and it was fantastic. I was initially down on the idea, thinking the crowds would be nuts, but I’m glad that 1) I was wrong and 2) there was enough momentum in favor of going that we went!
This was the last song in their set list, Last Night. The fireworks were a bit on the ridiculous side. They kept going for a solid 8 minutes or so and were increasingly over the top (and not in an arm wrestling movie sort of way).
