Bringing emo back: Reunited Spraynard to play Rock Shop

Reunited Pennsylvania punks, Spraynard, combine biting wit, emotional vulnerability and big, tangled licks.

Two years ago, in September of 2012, Pennsylvania emo-punks Spraynard broke up, seemingly out of nowhere. Not only were the three members long-time best friends, but the band was just starting to take off. Then, just as suddenly as they had disbanded, they became a band again. They played their first reunion… » Read More

Southern Hustle: Juicy J Gets Ahead by Keeping Money on his Mind

Juicy J got 'Bandz'

Southern Rap’s bouncy party anthems are now ubiquitous in mainstream music. But it wasn’t always that way, especially in the ’90s when East Coast and West Coast Rap dominated the radio and commercial landscape. It was during this lull, in 1991, that Juicy J (born Jordan Michael Houston) plotted to build a… » Read More

Movies

'Get On Up'

The model for the Tate Taylor (The Help) biopic of James Brown, Get On Up is Walk the Line: the influence is there from the opening murky backstage roar of an off-screen audience waiting to be fed, to the easy diagnosis of childhood trauma to explain its subject's drug-abuse and coldness. (It's a little wrong to blame the crimes committed by a man pushing 70 on his inner child.) If Walk the Line saw the past as a sunny idyll, here Georgia is in the permafrost of the Depression and WWII—it's full of the fallen leaves and fog of a Civil War movie. » Read More

'Boyhood'

Like all really first-rate movies, Boyhood has many facets to admire. Just one of them is the unusual way it was made. Richard Linklater followed a small group of actors during the course of 13 years as an experiment. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) live with their mother, Olivia (Patricia Arquette), with father Mason Sr., known as Dad (Ethan Hawke), dropping in for visits-and we see the actors age in their roles over the course of a decade. » Read More

'Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley'

As a photojournalist firmly dedicated to telling stories of global significance, Doug Menuez has borne witness to some incredibly difficult and terrifying things. He's seen people killed, has run toward raging forest fires and spent time in squalid drug dens. He and his fellow "hardcore" news photographers "were all willing to die to make a picture that would make an impact," Menuez says. » Read More

Silicon Valley Roller Girls Search for a New Home

Flashes of green, black and blue whipped around the track as the Silicon Valley Roller Girls B-Team, the Killabytes, took on the Faultline Derby Devilz from Hollister. Skaters slid across the floor, elbow and knee pads scraping on the track as speeding bodies collided in a roller derby bout that would end with a victory for the home team. SVRG's team came out on top, with a score of 249-119. » Read More

58th annual Sister Cities International Conference comes to San Jose

Thanks to the San Jose-Dublin Sister City Committee, the 58th annual Sister Cities International conference will unfold in San Jose this weekend, featuring hundreds of officials, diplomats, youth and young professionals and business leaders from around the world. None of them know, however, the space-time continuum-shattering implications of including Dionne Warwick and Norman Mineta in the agenda on the very same weekend that the San Jose Earthquakes play the first sporting event at Levi's Stadium, the 49ers' new facility. » Read More

Clandestine Brewing Opens in San Jose

In a maze of near-identical, single-story office complexes and warehouses near the county fairgrounds in San Jose, the light gray building's blocky, utilitarian architecture—so much like that of all the neighbors—claims no decade. An asphalt strip forms a U-shaped driveway around the rectangular building, widening on each long side into a single column of white-lined parking spaces that stretch from the street to the rear of the building. » Read More
