Geekery and rock ‘n’ roll have long shared a special kinship, so it’s a wonder that celebrations like what’s scheduled to go down in Cupertino next week aren’t more commonplace. Down in Silicon Valley, Homestead Lanes will ring in May the 4th with a special Star Wars Day show.

The night features a who’s-who of Bay Area geek rock, including Gnarboots, BLAMMOS!, Curious Quail, Cartoon Violence, and a few others. The Angel and Robot Show emcee.

The festivities start at 8pm. Costumes are absolutely encouraged.
