Star Wars Day

National Star Wars day is coming up fast, and we’ve got a deal on complimentary tickets to one of the hottest May the Fourth events in the city. On Saturday, May 4, two of Houston’s most exciting tribute bands will be live at the House of Blues for Margarita-Vader, a tribute to both the epic Star Wars franchise and two of the most popular bands from the decade that saw Star Wars hit the big screens. May the Fourth be with you!

Star Wars day is an unofficial holiday recognized by both casual and hardcore fans of George Lucas’ legendary science-fiction franchise. The date, May 4, was chosen because it sounds like a pun on the saying “May the Force be with you” spoken by Jedi knights and other characters throughout the Star Wars universe. Today, the holiday is recognized by Lucas and celebrated worldwide with Star Wars-themed parties and events and, of course, plenty of social media posts.

Houston’s own House of Blues Restaurant & Bar is celebrating May the Fourth with a special double concert by two of the area’s most popular tribute bands: Lost Shaker of Salt, a Jimmy Buffet tribute, and Synchronicity III, a tribute to legendary British reggae-rock band The Police. Doors Open at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 8:00 pm.

If you’ve got a full Chewbacca costume collecting dust in your closet you’ve been dying to unleash on the unwitting public, now’s your chance. is offering HOTC readers complimentary tickets to see Lost Shaker of Salt and Synchronicity III. All it takes is a free Goldstar membership you can sign up for with any email address or Facebook account. Note that a $4.75 service fee applies for each ticket.
