Green Day have created an online entertainment space called Oakland Coffee House. Content includes an ongoing concert series, called “Sorta Live from the Oakland Coffee House,” which will feature both new and established artists from across the U.S, as well as rare footage of previous Green Day performances. Oakland Coffee House content will be free or available with the purchase of a ticket to support the performing artists.
The first episode of the “Sorta Live” concert series premieres tonight (Friday, April 16th) with Green Day's Jason White, Brontez Purnell, and Whateverglades. Proceeds from ticket sales help support the artists and their charities of choice.
Billie Joe Armstrong said, “Oakland Coffee House is good music, plain and simple. This is just another way for people to have some fun and watch some insanely talented musicians do what they're great at.”
Bass player Mike Dirnt said, “We want to support artists and fans all over the world. There are so many talented musicians out there who you might not be able to see play live (right now). Oakland Coffee House now gives you the chance to discover some incredible music you might not have known about otherwise.”
