It's probably not the first time Strokes singer Julian Casablancas has had a pair of panties on his head. On November 4th, the band played a surprise gig at New York's Bowery Ballroom. When a pair of undies flew onstage during "Alone, Together," Casablancas donned them as a hat and kept on singing. Jaunty!
