Michigan’s own Hive of Scum and Villainy! The Space Dive Cantina!

“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy!” Not true Obi-Wan! We can find it at the Tangent Gallery! From May the 4th, through May 6th, the Tangent Gallery will be transformed into The Space Dive! A Star Wars multi-sensory cantina experience!

For a small fee of 35 credits (yes, I said credits) you can have access to the closest thing to drinking with a Wookie you’ll ever find. According to Mlive.com, The Space Dive will be filled with Star Wars-themed everything. Cosplay, props, music, and themed drinks!

Space Dive will be housed in the Tangent Gallery on 715 E Milwaukee Ave in Detroit. It’s a cool space, I showed some art there, a LONG time ago, in a galaxy far far away.

The event is for ages 21 and up and opens at 7 pm. But there will be a family day on May 6th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for 18 and under is free. Hours are 7 pm-2 am and the family day, May 6th, is 11 am to 2 pm. Tickets are only available at the door.

We Don’t Serve Droids!

You MUST wear a costume! And you’re cute “I know shirt” won’t work. Space Dive wants you to think about what a citizen of the Star Wars universe would wear. Even if it’s a jacket, some goggles, and one cool glove! I think droids are okay here though. So bring that little R2-D2 along!

“You don’t need to buy a Storm Trooper costume or anything like that. We want people to come not as on-screen characters, but as their own invention of what an everyday citizen of “Star Wars” would dress like. You could throw on a leather jacket, a keffiyeh and some goggles and be done, or you could go all-out with full Cosplay armor, masks and prosthetics. Just don’t come dressed in a “Star Wars” shirt.

The creative director of the event is John Dunivant. John is also the creator of Michigan’s Theatre Bizarre. He has some experience with creating unique and out-of-this-world events.

So if you have 35 credits and some free time on May The FOURTH, then you might want to take a Speeder down to the Tangent Gallery.


Speaking of Scum and Villainy, check out the history of the Star Wars Holiday Special:

Hot Scott, aka Scotty, when not wrangling his chihuahua he's writing, painting, and playing games. Loves Dungeon and Dragons, comics, and everything nerdy and geeky. He has an uncontrollable beard and has been known to wear a kilt on the right occasion. Might be a robot, we are checking on that. Send oil.
