George Bragdon of the Bangor Daily News reviewed the Strokes show at the State Theater on Tuesday night, praising their performance. “Live, the Strokes were everything a fan could ask for. They were a tight quintet blaring out their songs with immense rock swagger. They proved themselves as more than a studio anomaly, a producer’s conception. They were a real live band, and, despite the attitude they project onstage, were actually very eager to please the audience.” Bangornews.com has since removed the article.
