If you're as nutty about your dog as you are about Star Wars, then keep reading.

On Saturday, Aug, 31, Petco is hosting what might be the zaniest event of the year, where you and your pet can chill with Darth Vader and Princess Leia while admiring the upcoming Star Wars pet fan collection.

Finally, your dog's outfit will match your Chewbacca iPhone 5 case.

Starting Sept. 1, you can head down to any Petco and purchase Star Wars gear for your pet, including a Darth Vader doggie bed, Chewbacca chew toys, or a Yoda cat headpiece (whatever that is).

You and your pet will get a sneak peek at the merchandise at the Aug, 31 event, which will be held at 2300 16th St., suite 200 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. After a little browsing, you can (and absolutely should) get a Star Wars photo with your dog or cat. Don't forget to frame it for all your house guests to see.

Needless to say, these are not the dogs you're looking for. You can go about your business. Move along.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
