"Fog Rising" 

Wednesday, Nov 4 2009

Oakland metal juggernaut Saviours put in so much dogged road work since the release of 2008's Into Abbadon — logging time on both sides of the Atlantic with the likes of Skeletonwitch, the Sword, Clutch, and Saint Vitus — it's a small wonder the band found time to track its latest salvo, Accelerated Living. Packed with indelible locomotive riffs and savage harmonized leads, the epic new album does the Bay Area's brutal metal legacy proud. The group celebrates the stellar effort at Fog Rising, an all-day celebration of heaviness and psychedelia featuring sets from East Coast doomsayers Witch, Portland's Red Fang, and much more.

  • 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.
