The Strokes look set to play a secret festivals warm-up show tomorrow night (June 9) in London.

The band posted up a logo based on their own with the name Venison on their Twitter, before then following it with a picture from the same account clearly taken from London's Dingwalls venue.

The Venison logo is also now appearing on the front page of Thestrokes.com.

The website for the Camden venue Dingwalls.com lists Venison playing the venue tomorrow night, explaining that tickets will go on sale from 9pm (BST) tonight only from the venue's website.

The site also notes that the band were previously called "The Shitty Beatles."
