When you send out a press release about a "secret" gig, things aren't so secret anymore. Such is the case with Green Day, the chart-topping rockers who are playing a teeny-tiny club-sized benefit show in Costa Mesa Thursday night.

The band will play the Tiki Bar, but there will be no presale tickets; admission will be $20, cash only, and available only at the door, reports Pop & Hiss. Once inside, all the lucky "American Idiot"-lovers who got in will be held to a strict no cellphone, no camera policy. Oh, and sorry kids--it's a 21+ venue. (Wait--do kids even like Green Day anymore?)

All of the proceeds from the show will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
