Tour de NorCal 

Wednesday, May 9 2012
This year’s Amgen Tour of California features new challenges and breathtaking scenery — spanning more than 750 miles in just eight days. Today, San Francisco is the second stop on this Tour de France-style competition, the nation’s largest and best recognized cycling race. Starting at Marina Green, participants traverse a 49-square-mile course, past the Legion of Honor and through Golden Gate Park. Cyclists continue along Highway 1 through parts of Pacifica, Daly City, and Half Moon Bay. A pre-race festival offers fans the opportunity to mingle with elite athletes, Olympic medalists, and world champions. Festivities include a health and fitness expo, cancer awareness education, family activities, food, and entertainment. Now in its seventh year, the race has continued to serve as a free event dedicated to promoting the sport of road cycling, healthy living, and bike safety.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
