On Monday, July 25, The Strokes will perform at the inaugural City of Angels Benefit Concert, which will raise funds for three local non-profit organizations providing essential resources, services and hope to the homeless in Los Angeles. The concert will beThe Strokes’ only L.A. show of 2016. It will take place at The Wiltern, which is celebrating its 85thanniversary as a Los Angeles historic landmark.
“Homelessness and mental health are big issues in LA and we’re happy to do a little something that can hopefully help a bit. The Center in Hollywood and Waste Not Want Not Now are great, well-intentioned and trustworthy charities doing wonderful work,” said Julian Casablancas, lead vocalist for The Strokes. The event will also benefit the Downtown Women’s Center. One hundred per cent of the net proceeds from the concert will go to these 501(c)(3) organizations.
