Hey isn’t that … Billie Joe Armstrong, frontman of your favorite ’90s punk rock band Green Day, dining in Shaw on Sunday night?

Armstrong and three friends (not his bandmates) met up at Hazel, a restaurant just a few blocks from the 9:30 Club, where Green Day is expected to perform for a sold-out crowd on Monday. According to our spy, the party of four was “really taken” with the restaurant’s signature lazy Susans brought out especially for the shareable “duck duck” meal.

Green Day, a band that rarely shies away from politics (Armstrong has compared GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to Hitler, and Green Day’s album “American Idiot” tracked a generation’s political disillusionment), has a new album coming out Friday.
