Empire Strikes Back Night

“You must feel the Force around you,” Yoda instructs Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, “here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes.” Everywhere includes the High Dive on the night after Christmas, where tonight Rocket Queen Hannah Levin is hosting an official, unashamedly geeky Empire Strikes Back Night with pals and fellows Stars Wars obsessives Andrew Chapman (Princess frontman) and Matt Brown (Seattle’s most rabid rock fan). The trio will screen Empire, reserving, warns Levin, “the right to pause, rewind, offer nerdy commentary and generally behave like a trio of sci-fi dorks.” And because all three also happen to be metalheads, an evening of tag-team metal DJing will follow the screening. Rock hard, nerds of Seattle. ERIN K. THOMPSON
