Pontiacs and Giant Pussies

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2007 at 10:31 AM

It doesn’t get much cooler than watching a Pontiac commercial, does it? What about if said ad is for the Hollywood premiere of the Transformers movie? Still no? Ok, ok. What about when that consumer candy features a chic, automobile-friendly soundtrack sample of industrial beats by local electro-rockers Luxxury? Hopefully the royalties from that Luxxury band/luxury car commercial partnership will help fund front man Baron Von Luxxury’s alter-ego remixer -- he reconfigures tunes from the likes of local indie pop darlings Scissors for Lefty, Portland art punks Glass Candy, and, well, can’t-give-her-hipster-props-but-hey-she’s-a-star Hilary Duff! And in his free time, the Baron fights crime by crushing baby kitties with giant lasers. Sweet! And vicious! -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.
