Green Day in Concert at The Pete; Baja Bar and Grill Hosts Dancing Queen (Sat., 3/25/17)

1) Green Day, the multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-award-winning, stage-musical-spawning, Californian punk rock band, plays the Petersen Events Center. It’s not often that a group’s career-highs are 10 years apart, but such was the case for Green Day, who wowed Generation X with 1994’s Dookie and then Millennials with 2004’s American Idiot. The latter album inspired a Broadway musical, which toured through the Benedum Center in 2013. Pop-punk heirs Fall Out Boy inducted Green Day into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015, the trio’s first year of eligibility. Their newest album is 2016’s Revolution Radio, and they still have staying power among both old and new fans: the concert is sold-out. Bassist Mike Dirnt and vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong got together when they were 14 and formed the band Sweet Children. Drummer Tré Cool joined Green Day in 1990. Against Me!, who are known equally for their power chords as they are for frontwoman Laura Jane Grace’s championing of transgender rights, open. 8 p.m. 3719 Terrace St., Oakland. (EC/CM)

2)  Dancing Queen will put people on the dance floor at Baja Bar & Grill. The disco/funk band takes the stage at 9 p.m. 1366 Old Freeport Rd., O’Hara Township.
