June 20, 1990
Other Acts:
The Jolly Ho-Ho's
Notes:
  • Cometbus: "In Arcata in time to participate in first day of Redwood summer."
  • Sam Atakra: "Their first show was at a friend's garage space in Arcata with The Jolly Ho-Ho's. All I know is that our heckling made Billie Joe Armstrong cry... Cry Day..."
  • Team Rock: "It wasn’t the most professional of tours. Their first stop was Arcata, a small college town on the North Coast, and when Green Day arrived, they discovered that nobody had bothered to organise anywhere for them to play. The show went ahead anyway, in the living room of someone’s apartment."
  • Larry Livermore: "Around that same time, Green Day began their first national tour with a stop in Arcata. As often happened in that very laid back town, the original show fell through - it’s possible, even likely, that someone had completely forgotten to book it - and they wound up playing in the living room of someone’s apartment across from the Greyhound station on 10th Street. ...My verdict on Arcata, based on maybe an hour and a half tour: slightly more bourgie than I remember it, but as lovely as ever. With a wave to the upstairs apartment on 10th Street where Green Day played the first show of their first national tour in 1990, I swung out onto Highway 101 and made tracks for Laytonville."
