Still Stuck in Your Throat 

Wednesday, Oct 6 2010
Los Angeles rock band Fishbone had a hell of a heyday in the late 1980s and early '90s — because Fishbone rules. Even if (you're soul-dead and) you don't like ska, funk, punk, or metal, you will instantly like Fishbone after hearing the first five seconds of "Party at Ground Zero." Some of us remember the band for its early, hysterically mean pair of anthems, "Ugly" and "Lyin' Ass Bitch," from its debut EP. But the band's biggest success came with the MTV hit "Everyday Sunshine," also the title of a brand-new documentary about the band, screening tonight at the Roxie at 7:15. Three of the original members — Angelo Moore (sax and vocals), John Norwood Fisher (bass and vocals), and Walt Kibby (trumpet and vocals) — lead the band, and will appear at the screening to answer questions. But as various people keep saying in the film, there is nothing better than Fishbone live onstage.

  • 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.
