Bader Field, Atlantic City. This two-day, Metallica-curated blowout, featuring indie-rock darlings such as Best Coast and Fucked Up alongside cool metal undergrounders Charred Walls of the Damned, seems like a better fit for the hard-rock legends than last year’s Big 4 package: Let’s be serious, Metallica long ago outgrew the subgenre that named it. James Hetfield & Co. headline both evenings, playing their self-titled commercial breakthrough (you know it as the Black Album) on Saturday and their early classic Ride the Lightning on Sunday.
