We've seen Lt. Governor Gavin Newson master the moves of a long-winded politician, a local philanderer, and even a skilled magician. But perhaps you haven't seen his soulful moves that kind of remind us of an R&B singer.

Recently, the handsome politician's stage skills became apparent while he was getting hooked up with a microphone for a television interview outside of City Hall last week, moments after the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the path for same-sex marriage in California.

During the brief delay before he joined up with the broadcast, we caught him busting out some moves that could only be described as essential to a soulful R&B singer's performance arsenal.

Check out the four photos below in consecutive order, and notice the sharp facial angles, the pursed lips, and the trembling finger-to-the-monitor move to his right ear.

*Tip* For the best results, start at the top left square, and move clockwise.

  • 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.'"
