A Southern California company has upped the ante in the hunt for Bryan Stow's attackers. Lamar Advertising has donated more than 300 billboards that will be placed throughout the Los Angeles area, with the suspects' sketches and the reward offer.

Lamar tells reporters that it will post the billboards starting tomorrow, hoping to bring even more attention to the tragedy and help catch the two men responsible for attacking Stow on March 31.

Stow was wearing an orange Giants

shirt as he walked to his car outside Dodger Stadium after the opener game. Two men wearing

Dodgers attire heckled Stow and then beat him into a coma. Doctors say even if he wakes up, Stow could have brain damage. He remains in critical condition at a Los Angeles hospital.

The brutality of the attack continues to garner public attention and support. Already celebrities including Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum and epic ranter Charlie Sheen have pitched in more than $20,000 each to help Stow cover his medical bills.

Meanwhile, 42-year-old Stow, who is a medical technician and a father of two, remains in a coma. Yesterday, his family said they will move him to UCSF, closer to his home in Santa Cruz.

Police have reported no leads but have released sketches and suspect information. A $150,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the two men responsible for the attack.

The San Francisco Giants are headed back to Los Angeles next week for another two-game series.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
