Details
Location:
Ungdomshuset in Copenhagen, Denmark
Date:
October 31, 1991
Other Acts:
Lethal Doze, Lob Of The Lemmings
Notes:
  • Anders Houmøller Thomsen: "One startling anecdote goes: 'We played in Copenhagen back in 1991 at some youth center. People actually had sex on stage while we played', explained the 37-year-old singer."
  • Nikolaj Heltoft: "The list of now-superstars who have played in Ungdomshuset is very long. They came there before anybody else in Copenhagen knew who Bjork and Nick Cave were and in 1991 an American teenage punk band called Green Day played in the Ungdomshuset before shooting off to world fame."
  • "After the first week, when they discovered that it's a Danish tradition for punks to throw beer at bands they like, their instruments were toast. Luckily - for him - Armstrong had brought Lawrence Livermore's amp instead of his own. Replacing the instruments was out of the question, as they were barely earning enough money to keep everyone fed and traveling from show to show. The band ended up borrowing new equipment every night. 'Seriously,' says Tre Cool, 'I was using guys' kits where the drummer would say, 'If you screw up my kit, I'm gonna stab you.''"
