Foxboro Hot Tubs photos from Bowery Electric 04/25/10

“The Foxboro Hot Tubs played their first ever east coast shows on April 23 at Don Hill’s and April 25th at The Bowery Electric, I was fortunate enough to be the one to break (news of) the shows on the radio and twitter” said Russo after the pair of manhattan shows. Those of you unaware of the tubbies might be thinking, “first ever east coast show? Who are these Hot Tubs??” We’ll let Playbill.com explain:

The band, consisting of original Green Day members with the addition of singer/guitarist Kevin Preston, was formed with the goal of creating music with a more “garage” sound. Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong – who performs under the name Reverend Strychnine Twitch when playing with the “Tubs” – described the birth of the group: “We love to play music and be spontaneous, and after a few late night jams and a few too many bottles of wine, we were inspired to record some rockin’ eight-track recordings.”

While it was initially only speculation that the Hot Tubs were, in fact, Green Day, Armstrong (or Twitch) finally confirmed it, stating, “The only similarity between Green Day and Foxboro Hot Tubs is that we are the same band. The Foxboro Hot Tubs were a place we used to sneak booze and chicks into late at night. But most of the time it was just ‘dude soup’.” (Via Playbill.com)

“The Sunday night show was the crazier of the two and served as the first ever anything anything post show event as it began at midnight on a Sunday. Billie Joe and the boys were in rare form as they tore the roof of the super intimate Bowery Electric. It’s refreshing to see a band that sells out stadiums to be so loose at such an small venue.”

Below are Rich’s personal photos from Sunday night at the Bowery Electric:
