Bigger than Obama? San Francisco Goes Ga Ga over Lady Gaga at the Bill Graham

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Did you miss Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium? Well click here and you’ll be transported there in a jiffy through the magic of digital video.

How would you rate her stage energy in this “first-ever pop electro opera” compared to that of, let’s say…. a drugged Britney Spears? (Perhaps Lady Gaga missed her morning coffee the past few days, just saying….)

Anyway, she was the biggest thing to hit Civic Center since Barack Obama’s visit to the BGCA back in Ought-Seven. Is she Bigger Than Obama these days?  

Can LGG sing Poker Face upside down? Yes, Yes She Can.

Of course the True Fans waited in line all day, powered by California Pizza Kitchen and whatnot. Did the nearby CPK on Van Ness send over some free pies to those at the head of the line? Que bueno!

But don’t go gaga if you see a big bus (camera left) with “Lady Gaga” written on the side. Her real bus (should she need it) will be a unmarked million-dollar job, like the one on the right:

All this mania is quite a switch compared to her appearance at The Mezanine in the SoMA just nine months ago, the last time she came to town.

Bon courage to all those on this Monster Ball tour.
