The Strokes, the Quintesential American Rock and Roll Band

The Strokes (7) The Strokes are the quintesential American Rock and Roll band. I was fortunate enough to be able to catch their show last night at the Design Center in San Francisco. Although the Design Center doesn’t have the world’s greatest acoustics, the sold out show was pretty cool nonetheless.

The Strokes have three albums out to date and have for the last few years typified a certain kind of hard rocking American Rock and Roll sound. With influences like The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones and The Ramones, The Strokes tonight played a surefire set of hard rocking catchy tunes that rocked the house.

I took a bunch of photos of the band and have a set up of 50 photos of tonight’s show on Flickr.
