2008 Rewind: U for Unlikely shows



Billie Joe at the Foxboro Hot Tubs show.

Unlikely concerts. Surely because of Jason White, the Little Rock native and de facto fourth member of Green Day, the band’s alter ego, the Foxboro Hot Tubs, kicked off its national tour at Juanita’s. It was mad fun. To promote his exhibit of country music memorabilia at the Old State House, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives played a rare show in museum’s historic legislative chamber. He treated the audience to stories about BJ’s Star-Studded Honky Tonk (now Electric Cowboy) and Arkansas country legend Maxine Brown and a musical revue that seemed to stretch across the entirety of 20th century roots music.
