Julian Casablancas, whose music you may have heard during your last appointment at Anthony Leonard Salon, (or whom you may have seen in Anthony Palermo’s chair) may be known by some as lead singer/songwriter of rock band The Strokes, but as any artist, he’s much more than that. In fact, Julian recently released a solo album entitled Phrazes for the Young, on which he includes profoundly insightful “Phrazes” in the songs, and on the CD jacket as well. Aside from being an amazing songwriter, Julian is good at keeping a straight face while performing with Andy Samberg during parody videos like “Boombox,” on last week’s Saturday Night Live. If you missed it, check it out below—Just remember, the boombox is not a toy!
Julian will be headlining at Irving Plaza (aka The Fillmore East) next Wednesday, March 24th. For more tour information visit his website: http://www.juliancasablancas.com/
