What to Do? Tuesday's Pick:

Late Night Live w/ Black Quarterback @ Yoshi's

A few months ago the Examiner quoted a restaurant consultant's report decrying the music at Yoshi's: "No soul, no funk, no personality." Ouch. Had none of those surveyed been to Yoshi's Fillmore outpost on a Tuesday? That's when Bay Vibes hosts its weekly Late Night Live event, at which bands like Spaceheater's Blast Furnace, Black Quarterback, and others bring their informal intermixes of jazz, Latin, soul, funk, and - can you believe it? - actual personality to the lounge area stage. OK, so it might not be a crunk dusk-to-dawn rager with OutKast and Bootsy Collins. An all-night Bootzilla bash would cost you a helluva lot more than Late Night Live's ultra-low $3 entry fee, though. While Yoshi's can definitely get spendy, this could be the most affordable source of Fillmore District funk since the '70s ended. (9:30 p.m.)

  • 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.
