Behold San Francisco, where the threads of psych-rock never wear out. The latest arrival on the local scene is Golden Void, a supergroup of sorts featuring members of Earthless, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, and Eyes. Regular fans of mind-expanding rock will find plenty of good stuff here: lush canyons of riffs that rise up into searing climaxes, blazing bluesy guitar solos, and lots of those panoramic, sweeping melodies that loose, guitar-driven bands issue better than anyone. This week Golden Void celebrates the release of its debut album on Thrill Jockey, a Chicago label that has long nurtured the Bay Area's trippiest rockers.

  • 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.
