Foxboro Hot Tubs play Don Hill’s and Bowery Electric – April 23 and 25, 2010 – New York finally got to see Green Day’s alter ego band, and they showed us how a punk party can rock. For more than two and a half hours, they played it the old school way, straight ahead full blast! And what other band could play a great version of the Who’s ‘A Quick One While He’s Away’ halfway into the encore?…..just check out the photos below.
