UPDATE: Here’s a short review of the show at SXSW in Austin on March 17.

Just about six months after they headlined the Austin City Limits music festival, the NYC band The Strokes return to Austin for a free, open-to-the-public SXSW show March 17 at Auditorium Shores.

This is all courtesy of the fine folks at Levi’s, who will also provide footage of the show online one day after their performance. The New York five-piece rock band return with their highly anticipated fourth album, Angles, to be released March 22 in the United States, and March 21 in the United Kingdom.  Angles is the band’s first new release in five years, and their showcase will be their first return to SXSW since their now-legendary 2001 showcase at the Iron Cactus.

You can also catch ’em on “Saturday Night Live” March 5.
