  • Recordings from the show can be found here
  • Kyle Matteson: "I saw Green Day in '91 opening for a local band I loved back in Montana called Spurge. Had no clue who they were..."
  • ejones71: "It was called Inner World Gateway. I've been told it's still around. It's way out west on Grand or Central. It was the middle of a field at the time."
  • Dustin Bennett: "Looks like a 90's version of Pat Whitmer at the beginning. I thought he said he went boarding with Green Day when they came through in the early 90's, so maybe this is that time. I think Spurge opened for them, maybe Quash too."
  • Shawn Welch: "My friend JD did security at this show. He walked in on Billie Joe as he was applying his mascara and said, 'Sorry, I thought this was the men's room.' BJ went spider monkey and punched JD (like a girl) about 20 times before he could get him tied up."
  • Will O'Brien: "Inner World Gateway was on 80th St. and Grand Ave. That is the club I played my first show at. That club was really small I went to high school with the kid who ran it. His dad owned the building. It held, like, 75 to 100 people and they would stuff a couple hundred in there. Didn't last long."
  • The Billings Gazette: "...the second concert is an alternative rock show scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday at Billings' newest teen club, Hollowell's Innerworld Gateway. It features Green Day, a band that performed here in June 1990, and the local band Spurge. Tickets for the show, presented by Barking Frog Productions, are $5 in advance at Blueline Records or Innerworld Gateway, 8101 Grand Ave., or $7 at the door. 'It's heavy blues-influenced alternative rock, with heavy guitar riffs,' said promoter Sean Lynch, who noted that last year's Green Day show was the best he's ever brought to Billings."
