Oakland white rapper Ashkon opens tonight for the legendary Biz Markie in San Francisco. The line-up is stacked:

Biz Markie

additional performances by

Ashkon aka Ashkon Broadway <--- new shit

The Natural

plus The Green Giants Tour featuring mathpanda , Rosetta Stoned and Flex Matthews

Doors 8 p.m. Ashkon performance at 10:30

at Ruby Skye

In spite of this line-up ticket sales have been slow. What's up Bay Area? A CERTIFIED TRUE SCHOOL HIP-HOP LEGEND like BIZ MARKIE comes to the Bay and is getting slept on! People please... tell me this is just some Bay Area procrastination shit.

If the $25 dollar ticket price has been scaring you off, the promoter wants you to know that today he's giving away 100 tickets that will entitle you to a $3 discount. "Let's show and prove here people, I would like to see all of these tickets get used. Hit me up directly, if you need to get your hands on a discounted ticket. " says Sayre.

  • 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.
