Riding the SART Train 

Wednesday, May 6 2009
Local comedy troupe the Freeze throws a bass, a drum kit, and five MCs on the stage to play a musical round of “Can you use that in a sentence?” It’s not a spelling bee, though: It’s a comedy production called Super Awesome Rap Team. The skilled musicians and MCs include infamous Lady Sovereign–botherer MC Jelly Donut and his gang, freestyling with words submitted by the audience at the beginning of the show. A three-week run provides ample opportunity for variety and a concerted effort at stumping these folks — check your dictionary to throw the MCs some verbal curveballs for their "improvised freestyle." Bonus points for anyone who can get them to holler "'Improvised freestyle' is a redundant phrase."
Fridays, Saturdays, 10:30 p.m. Starts: May 8. Continues through May 16, 2009

  • 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.
