Billie Joe Armstrong’s band The Longshot touring, playing intimate NYC shows
Earlier today, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's new side project The Longshot surprise-released their debut album Love Is For Losers, which should instantly appeal to fans of '90s Green Day. The band also announced some tour dates.
They'll be in NYC for shows on May 22 and May 23 at Coney Island Baby (the new venue in the Brownies/HiFi spot that Billie Joe's pal Jesse Malin is involved with) and June 1 at Baby's All Right, which are obviously way smaller than the venues Green Day usually plays (but far from the first time in recent memory that Billie Joe has played an intimate show in NYC). Both shows are with The Trashbags, and tickets for Coney Island Baby and Baby's All Right go on sale Friday, April 27 at noon. All known dates are listed below.
