Green Day Cover Nirvana At Bar In Video


Green Day offshoot The Coverups recently made an appearance in Los Angeles this Halloween weekend, playing a whopping 36-song double set at Moroccan Lounge on Friday night (10/28).

The band, consisting of Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt, along with touring guitarist Jason White, engineer Chris Dugan, and tour manager Bill Schneider, covered tons of artists during the set: The Cure, Ramones, Bauhaus, Misfits, Cheap Trick, Nirvana, David Bowie and more, plus a tribute to the recently-passed Jerry Lee Lewis with “Great Balls of Fire.”

The Coverups were originally set to play Moroccan Lounge in early September, but the show had to be postponed due to Covid. With the timing of the rescheduled date, they turned the gig into a costume party, opening their second set with “Monster Mash.” Check out fan-shot video and the full setlist below:
