They made something old seem new again upon debuting a decade ago: With their equally wiry and wired guitar interplay, nonchalant come-ons and dirty hair, The Strokes made New York City rock 'n' roll as essential as it was when bands like Television, The Ramones and the Talking Heads were on the rise.
The Strokes have a new album, "Angles," due out soon, their first since 2006. What's it sound like? A bunch of dudes a lot cooler than you, making noise. Like we said: New York.
See The Strokes at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $49.50 and $69.50; call 698-7000.
