Billy Joe from Green Day Plays Acoustic Set at Bowery Electric
So Green Day is in town this week for a promo blitz ahead of its season of new releases – album trilogy ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!. Billy Joe decided to stop by the Bowery Electric last night to perform an acoustic set for lucky fans in the know. This certainly wasn’t the first time Green Day has graced the Lower East Side club, often jamming here under their rockstar alter-ego Foxboro Hot Tubs.
Details on the set list are rather scant, but the band’s discussion board says he played mainly new stuff, opening with “Scattered” and “Sex Drugs and Violence,” and “Rusty James.”
Green Day is playing a not-so-secret show at Irving Plaza this weekend as part of a social media contest.
