Where did you see them and what didn't you enjoy about these shows?
FTR, i still listen to both bands, but I don't have the same love that i once had of them.
i saw the Strokes at Jazz Fest 2 or 3 years ago. julian just came off as a huge prick, barely spoke a word outside of his lyrics. that was after coming on 15 minutes late and playing a pretty damn short set. it was just really disappointing. they sounded fine, but the show itself was shite. just my opinion.
MGMT was voodoo a few years back. funny enough, their set cut interpol's short...interpol was going to play a few more songs, but because MGMT was ready to go on the other stage, they pulled the plug on interpol. and mgmt just didn't sound great. the music just didn't translate well live, IMO.
