Do Not Go Gentle 

Wednesday, Dec 7 2011
There’s lots more to savor in the winter issue of literary magazine Zyzzyva than Katie Chase’s scary/sweet story “Bloodfeud,” but for our money that’s the yank-you-by-the-short-hairs standout. It’s genre-bursting fiction that pairs up the joys of cheerleading with the in-the-blood madness of a backwoods family feud. Its prose is by turns mean-girl sharp, noir dark, and winningly lyrical; out loud its insights and surprises should kill. We hope to find out tonight, when Chase and other contributors convene.

  • 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.
