Day games in September are notoriously unattended -- the kids are back in school, (who skips class to go to the ol' ballpark in 2012? Nobody.) the kids who do go often get in for free, and yes, there are themes!

The Giants' Star Wars Day at AT&T Park on Monday was the latest in a long tradition of getting asses into the seats. One can only hope for a Dubstep Demolition Night sometime soon.

Below are the 20 best costumes spotted by photographer Christopher Victorio. For the full gallery, go here: SF Giants Star Wars Day @ AT&T Park

20. Starting off our list, this father-son (?) duo who both, despite their masks, seem like they could really choke us out. Do not mess with this Dark Side crew.

19. If Darth Vader were to ever don a Giants hat (although he seems more like an Oakland fan: old, dirty, an early reliance on computer-generated data) he miiiiight look like the gentleman on the left.
18. It's just a Darth Maul mask. Kudos to matching his T-shirt though.
17. Group effort.
16. Taking just the person second from the right, donning that latex mask all day gets him or her to the 16th spot.

15. Zero creativity here.
14. You really don't see enough Jedi flyboy costumes.
13. "Let the Wookie Win!"
10. Not really a costume, more of a mingling of various Star Wars items with Giants-orange tutus. Fair enough. Then, do you see it? Yes, that's a Boba Fett thigh tat. The short skirts make sense now.
9. This duo. We won't use the H word, but if this were the Mos Eisley Cantina, you have to imagine this couple absolutely hating the music for being over. Then being hit with a blaster rifle.

8. Padmé Amidala and her fist of fury.
7. It's August. You're in a Wookie costume. The only thing that would've made this better is an ammunition utility belt across that orange shirt.
6. The Scout Troopers! Quickly, steal their flying motorcycle bikes!
5. We're suckers for kids in R2D2 costumes as much as the next blogger.
4. It's time to get real with these top four: The incorporation of baseball and Star Wars is almost seamless. The military-like placement SF logo on his left chest panel is perfect but the red color (instead of orange) only takes this costume to the fourth spot.

3. He's fluent in "over six million forms of communication" and can hold onto the ball even when the Giambis (or Gamorrean pig guards) of this world come barreling into you.
2. The Dark Side of the Force and sliding pants? Darth Maul comes in safely at the Number 2 spot.

1. Orange teeth. That is all.

  • 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.'"
