Ahead of the launch of concert series 'MLS Summer Beat' this weekend in Atlanta, Seattle and here in San Jose, MLS has created a few club-specific re-imaginations of classic album artwork. Their choice for San Jose? Bay Area locals Rancid's iconic ...And Out Come the Wolves album cover from 1995. While the original artwork features a young Lars Frederiksen, a Quakes Season Ticket Holder, the league inked a legend of our own in his place. The results? Glorious. Wondo does it all, doesn't he?
You won't want to miss the California Clasico this Saturday at Avaya Stadium as the Quakes take on LA Galaxy in the most historic rivalry in MLS. The squad is coming off of a road win agains who many call the best team in MLS, FC Dallas, and look to keep trending up as they take on their most bitter rivals. Gates for the match open at a special 4:30 time, so get in early and don't forget to check out Tijuana's Nortec Collective performing in the 7UP Epicenter at 5:30 for MLS Summer Beat! You can also see the rest of the album covers MLS whipped up here.
We even got ahold of an unreleased "alternate version" featuring everyone's favorite mascot, Q. Shh... See you on Saturday!
