Liver Than You'll Ever Be 

Wednesday, Feb 18 1998
Mighty Marty Perez, the rock photographer, grew up in Chicago, but got his start in Seattle in the crucial late '80s, as the American independent scene flourished; Perez became the court shooter for the fabulous Young Fresh Fellows. Then he moved back to Chicago, where he shot the strange pop doings there in the mid-1990s. Friendly and unpretentious, Perez flourished as a tireless chronicler of the mosh pit and the implacable face of the rock proletariat, fixing with an unblinking eye on everything from the deranged assault of the Jesus Lizard to the brittle celebrity of Liz Phair. Perez will be in town next week at the behest of the Mission's Aquarius Records, where an exhibit of Perez's work, "Liver Than You'll Ever Be," opens with a reception Tuesday, Feb. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Aquarius is at 1055 Valencia (at 22nd Street). Admission is free; the show will be up through May 1. Call 647-2272 for more information.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
