  • You'll have to wait two more months to Watch the Throne.

Last week, Jay-Z and Kanye West announced their Watch the Throne Tour. It was scheduled to stop at San Jose's HP Pavilion on October 16, but apparently all royal marriages take time, and now there will be a two-month delay.

Today Billboard brings word that the tour has been rescheduled, with several cities bumped off the itinerary for now. Luckily, San Jose isn't one of them, and the new performance date is Dec. 10. (Sorry, Sacramento: You aren't looking so lucky at the moment.) Tickets for the HP date go on sale on Aug. 8, the same day that the Watch the Throne album hits iTunes. No word on who will be wearing the crown at the concert, who will perform first, or where they've registered.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
