Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 9 2011

Few names in dance music carry as much resonance as Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. Along with Belleville Three compatriot Juan Atkins, they invented the futuristic sound of Detroit techno. In-demand solo DJs in their own right, May and Saunderson have teamed up to celebrate the 25th anniversary of techno with their Hi Tek Soul tour. The show is billed as a three-hour hybrid live set and DJ performance that incorporates a bewildering array of gear, including four turntables, four CD players, a drum machine, and a keyboard. Expect to see two masters in their prime playing music which, in Saunderson's own words, is "funky, groovy, electronic soul."

  • 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.
