Big Four: Twitter highlights of the Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax concert in Indio

April 25, 2011 |  7:59 am


Well, here's what you missed, courtesy of the fans who trekked to Indio on Saturday for the Big Four concert, the high unholy day featuring Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. It was held at the Empire Polo Field -- the same place as Coachella, the difference being that while Coachella needed 120-odd bands and three days to make its point, the Big Four did it with one concentrated quadruple fist-punch/devil-horn combination over a single afternoon and evening.

After the jump, read one narrative from Twitter.
