Daft Punk + movie about robots + live laser show = your Friday night highlight

(Electroma trailer)

This year, Daft Punk debuted its version of Two Lane Blacktop-ennui with Electroma, an arty flick about two robots who trapse around a quiet town, experience a literal face melting, and take a spin through the desert. The film has little to do with the French duo’s music and everything to do with their insistence on hiding behind elaborate costumes – the same get-ups outfit the stars of this dialog-free, minimally-plotted film. It’s smart that the Clay is showing Electroma at midnight (on Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1), as I’d recommend entering the theater with your brain baking in substances of your choosing.

To further enhance the psychedelic experience, the Clay is enlisting the skills of the costumed DJ Dupuy and a “bright green aerial light show” courtesy of the lighttech. Sounds so much cool than another round of Laser Zep at the planetarium. For more info, check out – 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.
