Stuff We Like: Green Day "American Idiot," The Musical
If you thought that our recent album Vitamin String Quartet's Tribute To Green Day's American Idiot was the strangest interpretation of the punk rock band's edgy songs, think again. September 4th marks the premiere of American Idiot, the musical! This musical-theater reinterpretation of the Green Day's 2004 album is directed by Tony award-winner Michael Mayer and will be playing at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, California. Get your tickets now because the show only runs through October 9th.

It's incredible — all those voices singing your songs at you.
