The Strokes—fresh off their exhilarating performance at Governors Ball earlier this year—are playing a benefit concert in Los Angeles to raise money for the city's homeless population, Consequence of Sound reports. 

The inaugural City of Angels Benefit Concert takes place on July 25 at The Wiltern, and proceeds will raise money for three Los Angeles non-profits that work to tackle issues related to poverty and homelessness: The Center in Hollywood, Waste Not Want Not Now, and the Downtown Women’s Center.

“Homelessness and mental health are big issues in LA and we’re happy to do a little something that can hopefully help a bit. The Center in Hollywood and Waste Not Want Not Now are great, well-intentioned and trustworthy charities doing wonderful work,” frontman Julian Casablancas said in a statement. 

Last month, The Strokes shared two videos from their new Future Present Past EP, releasing a lyric video for "Drag Queen" and a bizarrely political visual for "Threat of Joy."
