Get ready to stand in a really, really long line

Maybe it's a super-secret show or maybe it just got booked, but I only just heard about the Foxboro Hot Tubs playing Juanita's on Monday from an editor at NME looking for a review. Keeping it slightly under-wraps probably makes sense for the venue, since as any good pop-culture adherent knows, the FHTs are actually an alter-ego, a nom de stage, of Green Day.

This is what happens when you become a ridiculously huge arena rock band: You get bored and you try to reinvent yourself. Thankfully, this is no Chris Gaines makeover. The Hot Tubs, which include regular Green Day guitarist and Little Rock native Jason White, might even sound better than Green Day. The music is throwback garage rock that echoes the Stooges and Tommy James and the Shondells.

Maybe they’ll wear costumes.

There’s no presale. Tickets cost $20. The show starts at 8 p.m. at Juanita’s on Monday, May 19.

  • The Family Council vs. Issue 1

    Here's a storyline to watch: The Family Council, the conservative Christian group that's long fought against same-sex marriage and abortion rights, has come out heavy against Issue 1, the so-called "tort reform" ballot proposal that would limit damage awards in lawsuits. The messaging battle over Issue 1 has long been seen as one that pitted the deep pockets of the state Chamber of Commerce and big business in the state against the deep pockets of trial lawyers. Could the Family Council's truck with evangelicals tip the scales?
