Metallica to Stream Record Store Day Performance From Berkeley

Metallica’s show at the famed indie store Rasputin Music highlights a Record Store Day live show list that includes Mumford and Sons and Kacey Musgraves

The chances to see Metallica live are few and far in between these days, but at least the band is making up for it by streaming their new show to the online masses.

Today, as hosts of this year’s ninth annual Record Store Day, the band will be streaming a special performance from the indie store Rasputin Music in Berkeley, California.

Fans can check out the show on Metallica’s Facebook page at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT — it’s one of several taking place at independent record stores across the nation today.

Mumford and Sons will perform at Vintage Vinyl in St. Louis, while Kacey Musgraves has a show set up at Lunchbox Records in Charlotte, N.C.

This is the third special show Metallica has put out for free streaming in the past year, following a headlining set at last year’s Rock in Rio USA and the special show they performed in February at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Super Bowl weekend.

The band is also releasing remastered versions of their first two albums on vinyl along with a live album honoring the victims of last fall’s mass shooting at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris.

The live album features nine songs from a concert the band performed at the Bataclan in 2003. Proceeds from the album will go to charity.
