Border Beats 

Monterrey, Mexico’s Toy Selectah crafts riveting cumbia remixes of hip-hop that do a lot more than just slap on a Latin beat and hope for the best. He tweaks the chords and sentence structures on familiar songs (like Lil Wayne’s “A Milli”) to create totally new tracks. On the same evening Selectah comes to San Francisco, more south-of-the-border beats will flow from fellow Mexican DJ/producer Chico Sonido, a rare groove expert who lives in Los Angeles and works with the band Kinky (he produced Kinky’s current single, “Hasta Quermanos”). Toy Selectah and Chico Sonido will DJ at “Tormenta Tropical” on Saturday, Nov. 8, at Elbo Room, 10 p.m. $10, 552-7788 or — Tamara Palmer
Sat., Nov. 8, 10 p.m., 2008

  • 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.
