Brit-poppers Primal Scream have unleashed a new record, Beautiful Future (out now in the UK; not sure on the US release date). And as if there weren't enough Primal Screamers already, the band --- founded by one of Jesus & Mary Chain's early drummers, Booby Gillespie -- seems intent on stocking its records with plenty of guest stars. It's nothing new for these guys, who roped Kate Moss into singing on Evil Heat, and Beautiful features the vocals of Linda Thompson and CSS' Lovefoxxx, and guitarwork by Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme. You can download one of Primal Scream's newest singles, "Urban Guerrilla" for free here, a bombastic ditty about modern terrorism with plenty of arena rock swagger. Primal Scream's tour stops in  San Francisco March 17 at the Fillmore.

  • 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.
