    Green Day Rocks Deep Cuts at Intimate New York Concert

    Green Day headed to New York City the same weekend it released its new studio album, Revolution Radio. But the band didn’t play MetLife Stadium or Madison Square Garden; following the disappointing reception of 2012’s ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! trilogy, the veteran rockers embraced a back-to-basics approach, playing venues the size of which reflected their pre-Dookie days. On Saturday night (Oct. 8) at Webster Hall, the rock veterans played songs from that era, too.

    “This song’s called ‘409 in Your Coffeemaker,’” Billie Joe Armstrong announced about an hour into the set, eliciting screams from the fanatics. The 26-year old song arrived alongside others from the band’s pre- major-label days, like “Private Ale” and “Christie Road,” executed as if they’d been playing them for years alongside “Longview” and “Holiday.” Those hits were included as well -- along with most of Green Day’s standards -- essentially announcing intent for the most fan-friendly experience possible.
