Green Day have launched a new “sorta live” concert series, rewards program and virtual vault through their organic coffee business which they’re calling the Oakland Coffee House. The band launched Oakland Coffee in 2015 promising organic fair trade coffee beans in compostable packaging.
Sorta Live from the Oakland Coffee House promises to be a virtual “ongoing concert series that spotlights some of the amazingly talented artists from Oakland and across the USA”. The series will kick off this Friday (April 16) at 2 pm PT with performances from Green Day touring guitarist Jason White, Brontez Purnell and Whateverglades. Tickets are $1.99, with proceeds helping to support artists and their favourite charities.

The band also announced a perks program for signing up for “Free Stuff Rewards” on the site.
