Long Strange (Bus) Trip 

Wednesday, Jan 9 2013
We want to warn you, because otherwise it might bum you out: You’re sitting comfortably on the Magic Bus, grooving out on a loving multimedia gloss of what happened in San Francisco in the 1960s, and the windows suddenly disappear. Because you’re sitting facing the windows, this might be pretty intense. But don’t panic — Antenna Theater, which put this tour together, knows what it’s doing and why. The insides of the windows become film screens, and they show you what was happening outside, where you are right now, back then. It’s not time travel, but it’s a cool way to make a point. The bus visits the Haight, of course, and the park, but also North Beach for a Beat poet moment (window screens come up and you’re at City Lights!), and the nearby Transamerica pyramid for a meditation on capitalism’s space invasions. BYOLSD.
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m. & 12:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 19. Continues through April 30, 2013

  • 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.
