San Francisco psych-pop outfit the Fresh & Onlys today announced that its third album, Play it Strange, will come out on the In The Red label October 12. Unlike previous F&O albums, Play It Strange was recorded outside the band's home-side recording space, at San Francisco's Louder Studios, with Comets on Fire and Fucking Champs producer Tim Green. Glancing at the track listing, though, it looks like we're going to get more incredibly weird lyrics from singer Tim Cohen -- and hopefully the meandering garagey guitar lines we've come to savor from this band. The Fresh & Onlys play at the Independent on September 5 with Vetiver, and have a North American tour planned for later in the fall.

  • 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.
