Errors: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 4 2011

Since you should already be planning to see postrock titans Mogwai, consider this a plea to get there early enough to catch their protégés and fellow Scots, Errors, whose members are hitting the States for the first time in support of their most recent album, Come Down with Me, which has already received plaudits aplenty from the European press. Errors' present incarnation finds what used to be an impeccable but sterile take on electronic dance music feeling increasingly intimate and organic, thanks in large part to the personable precision of drummer James Hamilton — who is also playing with Mogwai on this tour — and an irrepressible funkiness under their churning backdrops and glitchy moves. (They also have a knack for spellbindingly strange music videos.)

  • 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.
