Jedis, Trekkers, Browncoats, Time Lords and Hitchhikers from all corners of the cosmos, follow us to a cantina at the end of the universe to celebrate Star Wars Day, May the Fourth. There will be aesthetically pleasing air pressure waves coming at your eardrums, mad scientist concoctions (no synthahol, we promise), and an eclectic crowd of humanoids, demonoids, arachnoids, cephalopoids, androids, and surprisingly many other alienoids. We won't let any wookies tear your arm off, but don't mention Miranda, or the seemingly harmless 90-pound brunette wandering around barefoot may suddenly opt for some thrilling heroics, and then you're on your own. Dress uniforms encouraged, watch out for the replicants, and don't forget your towel. You can materialize your Tardis right on the dance floor, but we recommend buying your multipass in advance, in case a clone invasion results in massive overcrowding and subsequent destruction of the entire multiverse.

With our special guests: alien monster puppet creature funk band BIG NAZO [11pm], returning just for this event from Rhode Island (though we suspect it's really outer space). After the alien invasion, DJ Poodlecannon spins space music for your dancing feet, flippers and paws.

Costume required, as always. Think Star Wars, Star Trek, HGTTG, Firefly, Doctor Who, Blade Runner, Martians, robots, aliens, androids, giant spider creatures with tentacle faces, orange-haired hot-pants-wearing supreme beings, intergalactic bounty hunters, true-blue-blooded opera singers, shiny creatures of energy in corporeal form, the time-traveling anti-you.

Press: "Plenty of opportunities to chat up droids, cyborgs and miscellaneous aliens" - The New York Times "Get your wookie on!" - Brooklyn Based "The party will have you dancing and carousing as if in a galaxy far, far away" - Metro

A classic 1920s speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, exotic cocktails, and the best electro-swing DJs remixing and reinventing vintage grooves late into the night. "Gatsby-era fun with a twist of new-school vibe" (The Village Voice).

The night starts with an introductory dance class for swing basics by Brooklyn Swings, who teach at our loft every Monday night. Live music until 1am. Burlesque fabulousness during and between. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.

The Jazz Age never ended, it just got funky. Dress accordingly: "An event worth wearing that ridiculous zoot suit for." - TimeOut NY. "Corsets and top hats tweaked with studs and leather are totally appropriate." - The New York Times. Suggestions: classy, tailored, glamorous, vintage (1920s-1940s), evening, hats, feathers, sequins, beads. No casual attire. Past Swing House details & photos here and here; hi res press photos here and here.

Press: "We love any excuse for a fancy-dress party, and Gemini & Scorpio present a doozy with Swing House...patrons in zoot suits and full flapper regalia dance the night away to live swing, jazz, and be-bop." - Flavorpill. "Gatsby never attended a party this good" - 24/Seven. "It's like a remixed version of the Roaring '20s, with live music and burlesque dancing." - TimeOutNY
