Do you get all those "The" bands mixed up? Can't keep track of The Hives, The White Stripes, The Vines or The Strokes? Well, if you had the opportunity to check out The Strokes in concert, you'd never mistake 'em for another band again. Their tunes had the sold-out crowd dancing in their seats and people scrambling for a closer peek.

There were two openers at The Strokes concert in Vancouver, Rooney from L.A. and Canadian East-coasters, Sloan. The crowd seemed to be just as excited and impressed by the two openers as they did by the final act. The Strokes have had different openers for most of their tour, often not even a musical act. SNL cutie Jimmy Fallon will open for The Strokes when they play in New Orleans on Novemeber 19, 2002. Unlike so many of The Strokes shows that have sold out in a matter of days, there are still tickets available for the show in New Orleans!

With hit after hit like Last Night, Sometimes and Hard to Explain, The Strokes have been dubbed the band that could save rock 'n roll - and they certainly live up to all the hype. To find out if there are still tickets available in your area, check out www.thestrokes.com.

Jurassic 5

Where: Vancouver, Canada
October 18, 20002

Los Angeles hip-hop masters, Jurassic 5, had their loyal following of fans bouncing on the floor, and off the walls, with a jaw-dropping performance that showed these guys are every bit as creative and innovative on stage as they are in studio. The four MCs and two DJs rapped and mixed their way through an energetic show that was tighter than a Britney Spears' halter top. Every rhyme, scratch and beat landed right where it should. Chali 2na picked up right where Marc 7 left off. It was a flawless set that demonstrated how Jurrasic 5's success comes from the funky vocal and mixing styles that each member brings to the group.

J5 mostly played cuts from their new album, Power in Numbers but they also mixed in a few classic numbers from Quality Control including Contact and the crowd pleaser, Jurass Finish First. DJs Cut Chemist and Nu-Mark treated the audience to a five-minute mixing session which featured several bizarre instruments and gadgets - and MCs Chali 2na and company ended the show with a freestyling demo that blew the house down. It was a five-star performance that left no one disappointed and no disputing that J5 are one of the most uniquely talented acts around.

It was worse than it intended to be.
