Video: Dev Hynes Joins Julian Casablancas + The Voidz to Perform “You Only Live Once”

posted by Oscar November 27, 2014

Last night saw the return of Julian Casablancas’ return to his hometown of New York to perform at the Hammerstein Ballroom with new band The Voidz. The opener that night was Dev Hynes (AKA Blood Orange) and while that lineup was cool enough, things only got better during the JC and The Voidz’s set as they brought out Hynes to perform The Strokes’ “You Only Live Once” together.

The result was a thing of beauty with the song having a bit of a warmer twist after peeling off the signature guitar riff and only playing it sparsely, making way for Hynes’ vocals. The other thing that made this collaboration so dope was how Julian Casablancas incorporated lyrics from the demo version of this song, “I’ll Try Anything Once,” into the chorus, trading lines with Hynes as he sang the “YOLO” lyrics.

See that above.

The Strokes back! This year’s inclusion of The Strokes on the Governors Ball lineup was a major surprise some months ago, but with a gig at the Capital Theatre and now FYF Fest 2014, it looks like the iconic NY band will be making their highly-anticipated return sooner rather than later.

As far as the rest of the lineup for this LA festival (August 23-24) goes, there are plenty of other big names to be excited about like Phoenix, HAIM, Earl Sweatshirt, Mac DeMarco and our up-and-coming guys, Twin Peaks. Other notable names on this list are Interpol, Run The Jewels, Blood Orange and solo sets from Strokes members Julian Casablancas and Albert Hammond, Jr.
