Orange County is getting a huge helping of pop-punk star power in a very tiny place this week, thanks to Green Day. The chart-topping trio announced that it would be playing a "secret" (not anymore) show at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa on Thursday. According to a midday press release, the venue will open at 8 p.m., and tickets will be available at the door for $20, cash only. The release states that there will be no presales and a strict no-camera and no-cellphone policy. All proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to controlling and curing the disease and improving the quality of life for those with CF. Green Day performs Thursday at the Tiki Bar, 1700 Placentia Ave., Costa Mesa.

Alex Coolman Green Party presidential nominee Ralph Nader swooped into Orange County on Friday, and some of Costa Mesa's Greens made the pilgrimage to hear him speak. The lanky candidate appeared before an overflowing auditorium at Chapman University in Orange, slamming Republicans and Democrats for being the pawns of corporate interests that he called craven, myopic and greedy. "The only difference between George Bush and Al Gore is the velocity with which their knees hit the floor when the corporations knock on the door," Nader said of the Republican and Democratic nominees for president.

When Doug Hamilton premiered his film "Broadway Idiot" this year in Austin, Texas, he had a particularly tough crowd to please. Hundreds of hardcore Green Day fans lined up outside the theater on Main Street, waiting to see the 80-minute documentary. The venue, with its 1,200-person capacity, added to the pressure because Hamilton's background in television had equipped him for screenings on small monitors with a couple of viewers. And to top it all off, members of Grammy-winning punk rock band Green Day were about to see his new effort.

"It's not over 'till you're underground It's not over before it's too late This city's burnin' It's not my burden It's not over before it's too late" — Green Day, "Letterbomb" * Punk band Green Day skyrocketed to fame in the 1990s, but is winning over an entirely new audience with its latest offering: a Broadway musical. But their "American Idiot" is a far cry from "Camelot. " It's a gritty, urban-inspired show that uses the same punk songs that made the band famous, and adds more than a smattering of simulated drug use, strong language and other adult situations.

How best to describe a New Year's Eve party that featured a Gatsby theme and a 1980s cover band at a luxurious hotel in Dana Point? From Tuesday night into the new day of 2014, the party was alive with mayhem, debauchery, dancing, drinks and grand celebrating. It seemed only fitting that Flashback Heart Attack, with band members based in Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach, would deliver the goods, as much more than background music. It's been a big year for the band that had its four-year anniversary in November.

Even as a child, Brian "Bubba" Kapko had a magnetic personality that won over friends, teammates and even strangers. While at Angel Stadium for Little League Appreciation Day, Kapko -- no more than 5 at the time -- was accidentally left behind by trip chaperons. Adults panicked. Kapko didn't.

"He could have befriended the meanest person there," said Mike Scheafer, a family friend and former Costa Mesa city councilman.
