Fox Hot Tubs aka Green Day tour

    Besides being a promising entrant in the Worst Band Name of 2008 competition, Foxboro Hot Tubs have another ace up their collective sleeve. They happen to be the musical alter ego of Green Day. Their album, Stop Drop And Roll!!! (due out in stores next week) contains a batch of punchy tunes in the garage-rock/’60s-pop mode that sound like they could have come straight off the Nuggets anthology. Truth be told, though, other than the lack of Billie Joe Armstrong’s trademark sneering vocal affectations, nothing here would have sounded drastically out of place on, say, Warning, but hey, let the Gilman Street punk-pop papas have their fun. You can join in that fun when FHT hit the road for a brief string of May dates.
