Don’t underestimate the power of the Force.

Star Wars

fans, local DJs and several scruffy-looking nerf herders came in droves last Saturday to

Dub Wars

, a

Star Wars

-themed DJ night at

Dub Wars featured the bumping beats of DJs

and

Feathericci Skywalker

. That’s right, this was no night at the

Mos Eisley Cantina

. Patrons got down to some sweet tunes on the back dance floor (voted

by readers) that, sadly, didn’t incorporate any of John Williams’ orchestrated themes.

Many bar-goers weren't aware of the evening's theme.

“I didn’t know what was going on when I got here,” one woman, who preferred her identity not be revealed lest a Google search link her name with a

Star Wars

-themed bar night, said. “I turned the corner and there was this

Stormtrooper

pointing his gun at me. He scared the shit out of me.”

Customers were presented with a deal no fan-boy could refuse: free admission for anyone in costume. So yes, there were Jedis, Imperial troops and at least one argument at the door about what qualifies as a “costume.” (

“Dude, I’m wearing all black. I’m totally repping the Dark Side.”

)

There was a plethora of costumes, trilogies playing on the TVs and dozens of different types of Star Wars memorabilia. A highlight of the night:

a fully-scripted reenactment of the Cantina scene from A New Hope

. Check out the clip from

Episode IV

below and imagine it happening at your local hang out. As if to end a perfect

Star Wars

evening, a

well-choreographed light saber dance/battle

took place outside that left many of the more Force-sensitive patrons cowering in fear.
