Been a Long Time, Been a Long Time 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010
It’s strange that it took years for the visual art world to establish its online voice. Despite a plethora of image-sharing services such as Flickr, Tumblr, and ffffound, sites that meaningfully document the art scene have been few and far between. Over the past decade, San Francisco’s Fecal Face has risen to the top of the heap, providing the art community with its very own Pitchfork or Gawker Media through consistently strong news coverage, a dependable calendar, and tart criticism. After a decade of being the Little Shit-Named Site That Could, Fecal Face is celebrating with “10 Years of Fecal Face Dot Com,” an anniversary exhibition and afterparty. Featuring work by 25 visual artists hailing from art hotspots including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and London, the show highlights the famous (Tiffany Bozic, David Choe, Shepard Fairey, Mars-1, and Jeff Soto) as well as emerging artists such as Richard Colman and Sylvia Ji. The afterparty at a nearby club offers a glimpse into the bacchanalian excess of the art world’s underground, with live music by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, Ty Segall, and DJ Ted Shred, plus a raffle for original art and clothing. If you spent any time at a liberal arts college, you know that the art kids throw the best parties.

The “10 Years of Fecal Face Dot Com” opening reception starts at 6 p.m.
Sept. 10-Oct. 8, 2010

  • 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.
