The Sandwitches @ Rickshaw Stop

If the Replacements were ghoulish teenage girls raised on a strict diet of Chuck Berry outtakes, the Sandwitches would be their biggest fans. Moaning and howling out harmonized orders to go "Back to the Sea" or "Mary Me," lead vocalists and guitar players Heidi Alexander and Grace Cooper are backed by the roughed-up, spare drumming of Lance Kramer. The whole caboodle is just back in town after playing an Austin music festival we're sick of hearing about, as well as new festival MtyMx in Monterrey, Mexico. Be prepared for "Beatle Scream," which really lives up to its name.

The Sandwitches and Hobocop open for the Growlers tonight at Rickshaw Stop (8 p.m., $8).

  • 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.
