Surprising Roommates 

Wednesday, Apr 2 2014

The gulf between the haves and the have-nots has widened lately into an unbreachable chasm, the dream of a plot of land demarcated by a picket fence not only a cliché but a radical hallucination in a city where all our desires are shoehorned into studios and shared living situations well past the age of alleged independence. Satisfy your lust for a long, covetous look inside the lives of others in an immersive, site-specific work that takes you through a private home in the Mission where four narratives unravel simultaneously in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room in FACT/SF's Invidious. Choreographed by artistic director Charles Slender, the piece follows six characters as they fall apart and put themselves back together again. Try to decide if it's envy or pity that moves you more; whether the taste of riches is bitter or sweet.

April 10-13, 6:30 & 9 p.m., 2014

  • 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.
