headerLooking for some great events to attend? You may have noticed our fancy schmancy new GeekWire Calendar and now we’d like to officially kick this baby off with some hot picks just for you.

These are our hand-picked events, which we’re compiling in this new feature that will be coming at you each week (or so).

And to really get things going, we’re giving away tickets to one of our featured events: the One Man Star Wars Trilogy! See below to enter to win!

Why Location Matters: LBMA Seattle, 6 p.m. Tuesday, 4/23. This is the the_lbma Location Based Marketing Association’s first Seattle event, partnered with heavy-hitters like Venuelabs, PointInside, and Razorfish, this sounds like the event to attend if you’re looking for a little location-based marketing inspiration (plus they’ll have cocktails).

She’s Geeky presents: She’s Geeky Seattle 2013: Seattle: Friday 4/26 and Saturday 4/27, all day. Great event catering to women in science and technology and the people who love them. You should go even if you’re a dude — expand your mind, yo.

onemanstarwars_lowiresOne Man Star Wars Trilogy: Seattle: Saturday 4/27, 7pm and 10pm. We cannot wait for this show! After hearing about it for years, this cult favorite is coming to Seattle. One guy plays all the parts from the three original Star Wars films, LIVE, in-person and on stage. Now that’s crazy and worth seeing!

Stumptown Comics Fest: Portland: Saturday 4/27 and 4/28, all day. A great event! Showcasing local and national talent, this is an independent, creator-based comic event. Such a breath of fresh air compared to the larger comic conventions. Fun for the whole fam!

Attention: Wanna go see the One Man Star Wars Trilogy for yourself?! Great news — we have 3 sets of tickets to give away. Just respond in the comments thread with your favorite Star Wars alien (original series only) and we’ll pick some winners! Note: These tickets are for the 10pm showing, 21+ only.

    Salacious B. Crumb-Jabba the Hutt’s heckling court jester. Ya gotta give the little guy some credit as his job was to make Jabba laugh/smile at least once every day in exchange for his life and an endless supply of food and drink. Salacious managed to do just that daily for twelve years until Jabba’s ship was blown to smithereens.
