    The Strokes may have been born and bred in New York City, but the band received no bigger welcome than when they played in San Isidro, Argentina over the weekend. According to bassist Nikolai Fraiture, 90,000 people attended The Strokes’ headlining set at Lollapalooza Argentina, marking the biggest show of their career. The band responded by performing a 19-song set that included three (!) encores. The second and third encores appeared to be completely unplanned, with the band playing “You Only Live Once” and “Take It Or Leave It” played at the request of the audience.
