Tribute to ‘Big 4′ of Thrash Metal Happens This Weekend
I've been to the Mississippi Moon Bar, inside the Diamond Jo Casino, in Dubuque, a couple of times, and each time, I'm impressed by the joint.
The first time was to see Ed Kowalczyk, the lead singer of Live do a solo show. Then I was able to see Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. I think even Slash would even give a head nod to the band that is playing there this weekend.
You've heard of The Big Four, right? Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer. The biggest thrash metal bands of the mid-late 80s and early 90s. I've been a part of many discussions in the late night hours debating which of the four bands are the best. But one this is for sure. When any of the four bands get cranked over a PA system, you pay attention.
This Friday, September 23, 2022, the Thrash of the Titans - (Tribute to Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer) are playing in Dubuque along with opening band, Six Shots til Midnight.
