VIDEO: Foo Fighters debut new album at secret club show

Those Foo Fighters are sure sneaky.

Dave Grohl took to Twitter Friday afternoon, posting several hints and pictures of himself driving up California’s Hwy 101 just hours before posting the news:

Tonight! 1/28 @foofighters w @the_bronx. 8pm Velvet Jones,Santa Barbara.One $20 ticket per person cash only. 21+ w/ID. Bam.

The last-minute, secret club show gave the Foos a chance to play their full new album before a packed house of 300 fans at a Santa Barbara club.

The set featured the full new album front front-to-back, before kicking in to a career-spanning second half.

Johnny Firecloud at Antiquiet has a full review of the evening that you'll want to check out here.
