While the crowd at Friday's Magnetic Fields show wasn't half as bad as the one described in this New York blog item "An Open Letter to the Audience from Last Night’s Magnetic Fields Show at Town Hall," I still had to laugh every time I thought of the line, 'You don’t see me turning to my friends and stage-whispering “I remember this song from when I listened to it.'” A solid, snarky takedown of over-anxious crowds (and the reason I can't sit through an Arcade Fire show). -- 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.
