Tommy Keene: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 25 2012

Cult figure Tommy Keene has traveled quite the winding career path. A myriad of major and indie label stints, a '90s touring guitarist gig with the Replacements' Paul Westerberg, and a recent collaboration with Guided By Voices' Bob Pollard are part of his extensive creative travelogue. But with last year's Behind the Parade, Keene continued his mastery of jangly manna thanks to a combination of Byrdsian-flavored guitar, razor-sharp hooks, and equally whip-smart lyrics.

  • 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.
