ACK in Bialystok, Poland
November 12, 1991
Other Acts:
Sink, Depresja
  • Marta Marciniak, 'Transnational Punk Communities in Poland: From Nihilism to Nothing Outside Punk': "Another band from Ruda, called Depresja, actually played with Green Day on their first European tour, before the American band got famous."
  • Larry Livermore: "I was on tour with the Mr. T Experience in Poland, not long after the communist government had fallen, and as we pulled into Bialystok, the last town before the Russian border, I thought, 'This has got to be the first time an American punk rock band has played in this part of the world.' Then I saw the huge 'Green Day' spray-painted across the town's water tower. They'd been there, done that, months before us."
  • ElanyC: "...And the third one was held on November the 12th in a small room of a club called ACK (aka Gwint) in Bialystok, and there was also a small afterparty. ...They played for about 80 people in Bialystok. From what I know, the setlist consisted of 15 songs and it was their final concert in Poland. I'm not sure if all of this is true, but the audio recording of this concert was released on cassette by some independent label, because the promoters were also the Polish representatives of Lookout! Records. But still, these are only speculations and rumors. It's hard to find anything about any early Green Day concerts in Poland - people who were there, recordings, photos and whatnot."
