Electra Mustaine is heavy metal royalty; her dad is Megadeth founder and front man Dave Mustaine. Jason Kertson is the grandson of Rob Lind, a member of The Sonics, a Seattle-area band that helped shaped the punk rock music sound in the 60's and are still rockin' the world today.
Electra and Jason have teamed up for a special concert to benefit Operation Ward 57, a non-profit organization that helps wounded servicemembers and their families. Electra and Jason performed their version of the Megadeth song, A Tout le Monde, then joined Margaret to talk about their families' respective musical legacies and why it's important for them to respect and support the military. Brittney Hamilton, founder of Operation Ward 57, shared more about the work the group does and praised Electra, Jason and other young people who take such an active role to salute and support the military.
Electra and Jason perform this Thursday, August 22nd with local band Lady Justice, at Louie G s in Fife. The show begins at 7:00 pm and tickets are $5 (suggested donation) at the door. Click here for more details.
