Exclusive: The Strokes Will Perform on ‘SNL’ March 5

Pardon me while I squeal and find that copy of “Under the Cover of Darkness” that I just downloaded so I can play it at full blast because SNL has an awesome musical guest lined up for March 5 show, which as we reported earlier will be hosted by Miley Cyrus. Now, Hollywood.com as learned exclusively that joining Cyrus will be none other than The Strokes, whose highly anticipated album comes out in 38 days, one hour and 39 minutes from the time I’m writing this post. EEP! Since I’m not lucky enough to have been in Austin or Glasgow when they recently performed, I’m just a little stoked to know that I can at least see them live on my little TV set instead of going out on a Saturday, which let’s face it, is exactly what I’ll be doing. Yeah, Miley will be there too, but adding The Strokes to this little shindig? Well, that’s pretty cool…and stuff like that.

In case you’re not already aware, here’s a little preview of what you’re in for:

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
