The Big Four Festival:





Empire Polo Grounds, Indio, CA

April 24, 2011

Well, the Big Four show -- featuring metal titans Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax -- finally arrived in the U.S for a one-off show. The weekend after Coachella, a small nation of metalheads descended upon the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio for an outdoor music festival with way fewer hippie girls and way more skull tattoos. Photographer Richard Haick was on hand to capture some of the mania, and he sent us these photos. For more, see our full slideshow from the Big 4 concert.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
