Get Your Vest On: Han Trio returns September 18

August 28, 2009
Wait a minute... I'm a TRIO now?! Have I been cloned or something? This had better not be another one of George's CGI "masterpieces." Chewie, quit humping my leg.

Alright, all dorkdom aside, let’s be real for a minute: There are few characters in the history of motion pictures as badass as Han Solo from the Star Wars trilogy. No one combined John Wayne’s brash machismo, Errol Flynn’s swashbuckler grace and James T. Kirk’s ability to convincingly shoot toy pistols quite as effectively, and just about every guy has wished he could be at least one of those three at one time or another.

There was only one Han, but three men–Shawn Eckels and Reed Herron of Speakeasy, along with John Anderson of The Sociables and Super String Theory on drums–donned the black vest and way-underbottoned white shirt combo to pay tribute while covering songs from famous musical trios. The result was a High Life Live Martini Lounge in a tizzy and wanting more.

Now they’ll get it. The group, known as Han Trio, has agreed to return to The High Life for another show Friday, September 18, knocking out tune after tuneĀ from three-member groupsĀ (think Nirvana, The Police, Jimi Hendrix Experience, etc.) starting around 10 p.m. Five dollars gets you in the door for the badassness. Princess Laya impersonators are likely welcome, as well.
