Poor Turnout for Palin Look-a-like Castro Meeting

Yesterday, our friends at SFist tipped us off about a Palin look-a-like meet-up scheduled for 5 p.m. at the intersection of Castro, Market and 17th. The plan was for the Palin types to "fan through the city looking for Joe Six-Pack," organizer Eve Moran (pictured at left) told Bay City News. They wouldn't have had to walk far to run into Joe Stumblebum, trusty bottle-in-paper bag in tow.

We're guessing Moran (who somewhat-famously played the VP candidate when the real McCoy made a fundraising stop in Burlingame) was a little disappointed in the turnout. Weekly photographer Sam Heller made his way to the Castro to shoot the spectacle and met with a very apologetic Moran, and two dudes in dresses. George Circlo (pictured at center) didn't even bother shaving. Shane Hladki (at right) was dressed as the Alaska gov.'s 17- year-old daughter Bristol. A fourth lady Palin showed up briefly, but then scampered away to move her car, lest it be ticketed, gosh darn it.

Expect to see more Palins roaming the city today, rain or shine. More photos from yesterday's meet-up beneath the fold. --Janine Kahn

  • 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.'"
