The Foxboro Hot Tubs just finished playing two shows in Austin, TX. View photos, setlist and more for each show: March 14th and March 15th.

This morning the Children's Hospital and Research Center Foundation from Oakland, CA announced that Green Day is selling 30 VIP passes at $1,000 each to Green Day's show in Mountain View, CA on September 4th.

The VIP passes get you into the show, the pre-show, backstage, and the VIP after party, and all the money goes to benefit the Children's Hospital. Such an awesome cause, and I'm really happy to hear the band is doing this.

Visit the Oakland Children's Hospital website for information and to buy tickets. These won't be around for long, so if you're interested, do it ASAP.

Update: It looks they're already sold out! If we hear anymore about availability, we'll be sure to post.

Here's the full press release
