The Strokes Open New York City with Concert Featuring John Mulaney, Blood Orange, AOC: Watch

On Saturday, The Strokes played the first full-capacity indoor concert in New York City since the start of the pandemic. The set served as a fundraiser for NYC progressive mayoral candidate Maya Wiley, and featured appearances by Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, comedian John Mulaney, and congressional representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The Strokes had previously supported Wiley with their first-ever unplugged concert on May 15th. This latest fundraiser occurred 10 days ahead of early voting, and took place at the newly-renovated Irving Plaza. Before the concert, Mulaney spoke in favor of Wiley, saying, “If I derail her campaign, I am deeply sorry.” AOC joined Wiley on stage, telling the fully-vaccinated crowd to stump for Wiley with their friends and family and announcing that “Holy shit, New York is back!”

The Strokes played a 16-song set, via Stereogum, including classics like “Is This It” and “Reptilia” as well as cuts from 2020’s The New Abnormal, which earned them their first Grammy for Best Rock Album. Blood Orange joined the rockers for “One Way Trigger” off their 2013 effort Comedown Machine. Check out videos and the full setlist below.
