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.
popmatters.com music blog is running a 14 part series called "All About Dookie" written by AJ Ramirez. Each part is an in-depth analysis of one song from the album. Entries for "Burnout" and "Having A Blast" have been posted on the site, and you can read them here and here, respectively. Here's a little bit of what Ramirez has to say regarding both songs:

"Despite being a paean to not giving damn, "Burnout" is a speedy, antsy rocker that could only be executed by a group of well-practiced musicians. Green Day has always prided itself as a tightly honed band, and it shows as the trio delivers a fantastic performance."

"As Armstrong sings, he utilizes palm-muted strumming during the verses, gradually building up intensity until he switches to regular strumming for a fuller sound. This evokes the burgeoning tension of the protagonist, who's literally ready to go off at any moment."
