This past Saturday (September 29), more than 60,000 people -- including myself -- packed Central Park's Great Lawn for the Global Citizen Festival, a free show featuring Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses and K'Naan with the goal of raising awareness about and ending extreme poverty across the globe.
When you think about it, the fact that Green Day is releasing an album trilogy really isn't all that surprising.

Greetings! We are Cosmic Shakedown. On lead guitar and vocals, we have both Tony Nash and Josh Gartley. On bass guitar is Larry Gartley, and Shea Rayhn on drums. We have been together almost two years now, and we just released our first full-length album, Fake American Dream, on August 11. We have copies on vinyl and CD, and it's available on Amazon and Spotify.
