Singer Julian Casablancas said in a statement, “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 show comes just weeks after the release of the Strokes’ Future Present Past EP and is said to be their only Los Angeles concert of 2016.

  • Beck is close to finishing the follow-up album to 2014’s Grammy-winning Morning Phase, with the still-untitled record due out in October. It’s described as a “left turn” from his previous record, with “big hooks, hip-hop loops and the poppy energy of his classic ’90s work.” Beck said the new disc was inspired by playing big summer festivals for the past few years, explaining, “It’s a summer night, people have their hands up. It’s a communal, celebratory thing. I wanted to take that into the studio, a kind of energy or joy. The thing that wakes you up a little bit.” The first single will be a track called “Dreams.” (Rolling Stone)
