I had a rare opportunity last Thursday to perform in the legendary Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre. The place is a San Francisco landmark filled with history and scandal. For instance, one Mitchell Brother murdered the other, and people like Hunter S. Thompson and R. Crumb hung out there. Unbeknownst to me the theater actually has a stage with stadium seating. I didn’t see the strip club part of the building, but what I saw was classy! For reals. I was impressed. The stage was beautiful too. I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it. But I did get pictures of some of the amazing stuff on the walls in the halls, offices and lounge of the O’Farrell Theatre.
Like the view of the signage, a portrait of the Mitchell Brothers and a pic of woman COMBING HER PUBES!
And for any SF Bay Area KRON4 News watchers out there, you might be interested to know that Jim Mitchell was a big fan of Pam Moore. It was funny to see her innocent headshot amidst all the nude pinups, and the pic of the woman shooting a ping pong ball out of you know what.
Turns out the Mitchell Brothers supported cartoonists. The place was filled with original R. Crumb drawings. There was even a life-size painting on the wall by R. Crumb – a portrait of a stripper who worked there.
I also go to hang out with my friends The New Eccentrics. Sarah was spooky and sexy at the same time. You go girl!
I wore a new 1940s dress I picked up from Thunderhorse Vintage in Sacramento, CA, and a 40s hat from Vintage a la Mode in San Francisco. The hat was one of those saw it at the store and then obsessively thought about it for days, and had to go back to buy it. I’ll have to take better pics some other time, but it has beautiful felt flowers and what kills me is the little butterfly made of purple feathers sitting in the flowers. HAD TO HAVE IT!
Also, remind me to wear a black slip with that dress. Yikes! The flash gave y’all a peek of my bra.
Happy Halloween everybody! Next post I’ll share some Halloween pics.
