Jason Newsted Announces West Coast Dates with New Band


Do you, like Vince, appreciate Jason Newsted’s recent conversion to an acoustic sound? Have you suddenly gained a newfound respect for arguably the most mocked guy in metal because he’s no longer playing in a dozen different metal bands that never quite get off the ground? Do you want to support a guy who’s brave enough to delete his Twitter account?

Well, now you can pay your respects in person, as Newsted’s new group, Jason Newsted and The Chophouse Band, has booked a series of west coast live dates, which you can find below.

Not sure you want to shell out your hard-earned greenbacks to see Metallica’s second bassist play with an acoustic band? I think you better watch the video below, where Jason and the Soggy Bottom Chophouse Jamboree run through the most daring and provocative track of all time, “This Land is Your Land.” Right? Fuck “Am I Evil?”, this is the cover we’ve been waiting for all these years.

Hear your grampa shout, “PLAY ‘KING NOTHING!’” at one of the following dates below:

9/2/16 – Crystal Bay, Nev. – The Crystal Bay Club / Crown Room
9/7/16 – Santa Cruz, Calif. – Moe’s Alley
9/8/16 – Mill Valley, Calif. – Sweetwater Music Hall
9/10/16 – Napa, Calif. – Silo’s
9/17/16 – Sebastopol, Calif. – Hopmonk Tavern
