Ryan Cabrera: "Billie Joe Armstrong Kissed Me on New Year's Eve"

Ryan Cabrera got a little loose during an NYC concert cruise aboard The Jewel Friday night - at one point admitting to the 200 folks on-board that "Billie Joe Armstrong kissed me on the mouth on one New Year's Eve!"

"My dream as a kid was to hang out with Green Day," Cabrera prefaced, adding that "I love women. And Billie's wife was there [during the kiss] so it's all good. So was my girlfriend."

The audience cheered wildly during Cabrera's speech, as the singer kicked back multiple shots and Whiskeys during his hour-long set.

"Don't think I'm gonna take shots and puke and not finish the set," Cabrera warned. "I'll come back after puking off the balcony and finish the set. That's how much I care."

Despite his intake, Cabrera played a flawless hour-long show that included songs "Shine On," "True," and "Exit to Exit," while also sharing a few details about his forthcoming 2011 LP.

"I have a new record coming out in 2011, but bare with me," he warned. "It's a little different. It'll make you wanna dance.

Opening for Cabrera were the fantastic Dion Roy and Matt Lowell.

Coheed and Cambria Celebrate Year of the Black Rainbow Release with Best Buy Performance

Coheed and Cambria celebrated the release of their latest record Year of the Black Rainbow Tuesday by hosting a free concert, Q&A and book reading for fans at Best Buy in Union Square!

"After three years of playing, to hold a CD and say I'm part of this, is a great feeling," said drummer Chris Pennie, whose recording debut with C&C came on Black Rainbow.

The boys played a four-song acoustic set for the 200-something fans in the crowd, which included songs "Here We Are Juggernaut," "Far," "Pearl of the Stars," and "Welcome Home."

"What's fun is adapting these [YOTBR] songs acoustically," said frontman Claudio Sanchez. "It's another way to exercise our creativity."

A fan then asked Sanchez what the most important song he ever wrote was.

"If I had to choose, I think 'Wake Up' would be the one," he said. "They're all important though. They've all chronicled points of my life."
