UPDATE, 10:14 A.M., AUGUST 10, 2011: We hear that Green Day will be playing Thursday (that's tomorrow, by the way--are you in line yet?) without their backing band--and to expect a set list rife with "old stuff."

Green Day/Costa Mesa story from back in the day: as the band was blowing up, OC Weekly music writer Jennifer Vineyard interviewed Billie Joe on the phone before an OC show. He asked her to name a good independent record store here, and she answered Dave James' now-late, great Noise Noise Noise in CM. On stage later, Billie Joe told the crowd he always pops into Noise Noise Noise when he's in town.

This is a seriously BAD idea... This venue is WAY too small to host a band this big without a presale... and the "secret" is all over Twitter.... Green Day is a trending topic...

I'm thinking this is gonna get ugly... fast.

If they wanted to raise money for Charity... Galaxy Theater may have been a better idea...

Foo Fighters did the same thing at the Dragon Bar, the Roxy and Spaceland a few months ago. . .

I haven't been inside in YEARS but it's tiny.... about 3,700 sq ft... based on the aerial shot from Google Maps.

I'd say 300 people is pushing it.

I don't know the exact amount it holds, I've only been there a few times. But it is very small, just a little bar. If it's totally packed, I'd say 300 to 400 probably at the most. Just a guess.
