The Strokes may be one of the greatest indie rock bands of all time, but their stage banter is infamously horrendous. I’ve been to at least 5 Strokes shows and at each show, without fail, lead singer Julian Casablancas finds a subject to ramble incoherently about while the rest of the band waits patiently to kick off “Last Night,” “Heart in a Cage,” or any other outrageously good slice of New York rock and roll cheese. 

 That’s why on paper, a Youtube series featuring the band members sans instruments, plus microphones, sounds like a slow motion trainwreck. But there is almost nothing better on the internet than Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr, and Co.
