"I've never seen so many people dancing on stage throughout a band's set," described LAist News Editor Andy Sternberg, who went to the Foxboro Hot Tubs' show at the Roxy last night. "Billy Joe was loving it."
Tonight, the Green Day side project heads down to Alex's Bar in Long Beach. The website says no lineups prior to 6:00 p.m. Good luck to all.

On the rumor side of things, it is said that Elvis Costello and the Imposters are playing at El Rey for an unannounced late-night show after their Hollywood Bowl performance with The Police. Somewhere on the radio, some station might announce it around 7:00 p.m. (Indie 103.1 maybe?) Anyone with additional info should make a comment below.
