Do I really need to say anything to get you excited for the King of Motown? The man's written some of the most important American pop songs, both for himself and the rest of the original Motown sound. Not to mention his voice is like butter on your breakfast toast. See the prolific Smokey Robinson present his awesome song catalog at the Paramount Theatre Jan. 24. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Nov. 14 at 12 p.m. --Oscar Pascual

  • 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.
