What You Missed: Big 4, Railroad Revial Tour, Paw Pawty, Robert Plant

What'd you miss this weekend? It was a long one for us: We headed out to Indio (again!) for the Big 4 Festival with Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer; then we checked out the Railroad Revival Tour, which stopped in San Pedro with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford & Sons.

Oh, and also? We watched as a bunch of dogs held their own Easter egg hunt and some dude named Robert Plant threw a show at the Greek in LA.

Metallica ruuuuuules!

For three weekends in a row, the Empire Polo Club in Indio will see nothing but huge festivals: Coachella, Stagecoach and, tucked in between 'em, The Big 4. On April 23, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax converged for one ultra-festival. Click here to see the slideshow.

Big 4 Festival fans: yep.
