  • Billie Joe Armstrong: "Green Day show this Thursday! Hint, it's not in California or New York..."
  • Matt Kuhn: "The 'secret show' with Green Day tonight in Austin is something that I have been watching ever since Twitter started buzzing about them cruising around town in Austin a couple of days ago. I was super bummed that I missed them for the Surfrider secret show, and now a little over two weeks later I will be at Red 7 with 499 fellow Austinites hitching a ride! ... Plus $20 is $60 less than Radiohead would have cost me (and better venue with vomit covered toilet seats!). Had a great time at the 2.5 hour Green Day secret show at Red 7 in Austin, TX. Billie Joe, Tre and Mike were hanging out at the bar and walking around Red 7 (and Billie Joe was drinking a ton of Lonestar). At one point Mike was literally bumping elbows with me by the back bar watching the opening band. Pretty cool that everyone was being cool about it (or didn't recognize them). Security was super tight on cameras, but I ended up taking a bunch of footage stealth mode, will try to get it all up. Pretty awesome night and epic show!"
  • Culturemap Austin: "Punk rock superstars Green Day announced Thursday morning they would play an intimate show at Austin club Red 7. The show at the small 7th Street club with a capacity of only a few hundred is the second such downsized show inside of a month for the band ... Word began to spread Wednesday of a 'secret' show by the Grammy-winning and multi-platinum band following a tease on the Twitter account of Billie Joe Armstrong ... Music fans on Twitter began reporting sightings of drummer Tre Cool around Austin in recent days while others reported seeing Armstrong boarding a flight bound for Austin earlier this week, and pieces of Green Day-specific street art began popping up on 6th Street Wednesday as well. Speculation had the show occurring at a variety of Austin venues, including the new Emo's East, uber-cool Rainey Street hangout Lustre Pearl ... and East 6th Street bar Shangri-La, which is celebrating its third anniversary this weekend. Transmission Entertainment booker Graham Williams confirmed the locale of the show Wednesday night, saying the band has been in town working on new material recently that will almost certainly be bound for the followup to 2009's 21st Century Breakdown. The trio ... spent time recording material at Austin's Yellow Dog Studios over the summer. ..."
