Mudhoney: Show Preview 


The guys in Mudhoney are OG — original grunge — through and through, with résumés steeped in the tinnitus-inducing distortion of bands like Green River, the Thrown Ups, and Bundle of Hiss, not to mention drummer Dan Peters' brief stay in Nirvana. But they saved all of their best work for Mudhoney, whose superfuzz bigmuff sound, propelled by frontman Mark Arm's cheeky snarl and guitarist Steve Turner's seminal sludge, most perfectly captured the essence of the movement that defined a city and resulted in a seismic shift in popular music in the early '90s. Like many geniuses before them, the members of Mudhoney will probably have to die to get their due, but thankfully they're still alive and kicking back home on Sub Pop, with 2008's The Lucky Ones proving that well-executed scuzzy, bluesy punk never goes out of style.

  • 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.
