9:30 Club in Washington, DC
November 10, 1997
Other Acts:
  • The setlist is out of order
  • "An amazing show! It was a sold-out crowd at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. Superdrag had done their set and now everyone was ready for Green Day! Their roadies were setting up the equipment and the Ramones were playing over the PA. After a while, Whip It by Devo was blasted over the PA speakers and everyone knew that signaled something. Before you knew it, the boys from Green Day trotted up on stage and the crowd went crazy. They opened up with Going to Pasalacqua. Crazy things were going on the whole show. At one point, Bille Joe walked out with an Elmo doll in his pants. He whipped Elmo out and had him clapping along to the song. Then he brought a member out of the crowd to play along to the cover tune, Knowledge. After the guy played along, he commenced in the traditional stage dive. When I Come Around was the second to last song. After they played that, Green Day absolutely destroyed their set. BJ was playing weird shit on the guitar, Tre was trashing his drum set big time (their were sparks flying when he was hitting the cymbals against each other!) and Mike was spraying water and beer on the crowd. Well, there it was, a trashed set, absolute chaos onstage. Then, the roadie took one of the mics and just placed it towards the middle of the stage. Then, BJ came out and played Good Riddance (Time of Your Life). The crowed loved it. Billie didn't play it acoustic though, he just played it on his regular old guitar. It ended what was possibly the best live act that I have ever seen. If you get a chance to catch Green Day live, you won't regret it!"
