Wood for Gold 

Wednesday, Jan 8 2014

It's easy to see why the Tenderloin's Ever Gold Gallery is a favorite among locals. The former bling shop, now a contemporary art gallery, features artists as gritty and diverse as the neighborhood in which it resides. Founder/owner and San Francisco native Andrew McClintock's ever-changing lineup of local and international artists seems to be selected based on his tastes for uninhibited voice and nervy work. It's like a big, refreshing, uncensored, punch in the face. The gallery's fifth birthday will be a showing of 80 emerging and mid-level artists between the ages of 19 and 81. Although you never really know what will happen when 80 artists are shown together in a 500-square-foot space, we can hope to see a few things like Ben Venom's bold grandma-quilting-meets-tattoo-art textiles, eerily delicate drawings from Mary Joy Scott, and humorous sculptures by Jeremiah Jenkins, among many, many others.

  • 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.
