Turbonegro @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 (more by Keith Marlowe)

For those about to rock:

Ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has formed a new band called… wait for it… Newsted, and they’re on a tour that brings them to Bottom Lounge on Saturday. Tickets are still on sale.

Newsted is also one of the bands opening for Megadeth on Gigantour this year. That hits Allstate Arena on 7/9 and tickets are on sale.

Meanwhile, Turbonegro, who now play with a new singer (well, since 2011), are kicking off a North American tour this weekend and its second stop is Double Door (moved from Metro) this Sunday (5/19).
