Notes:
  • "James, put down that skinhead!" written on the spine of "1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" CD is likely a reference to this show.
  • "Green Day won't play Sacto" in "Green Day Bits" (included in "Slappy" EP booklet) written by Aaron Cometbus refers to this show.
  • "Runnin' Riot", chapter 46 of "Gimme Something Better" (J. Boulware, S. Tudor) was written about this show.
  • Billie Joe Armstrong: "They [skinheads] were so excited because we play too many love songs!"
  • Sarah S.: "I saw Green Day when they were still called "Sweet Children" or some stupid thing at Clunie Hall in McKinley Park."
  • gornzilla: "When Green Day first played here, yes, they were beaten up. They stopped playing here. They didn't play here again until they became huge."
  • weretheman: "I've heard Green Day swore off Sac because they got the shit kicked out of them by a couple of skinheads after a show at Clunie Hall years ago."
  • John Kiffmeyer: "Then we got beat up by skinheads in Sacramento and all of a sudden he [Billie Joe] had another frustration in life. ...During our love song review, there was a fight at the show, the police came and threw everyone out. So, afterwards we were loading our van and the skinheads came back to beat up whoever they were beating up, with baseball bats... And that person wasn't there so we conveniently filled their space..."
