May the Fourth Be With You.

Recently, the Metropolitan Museum of Art sent notice to the list of predominantly celebrity invitees of tonight's Met Gala, informing them that they will not be permitted to take selfies during the event.

For the record, this is the same event that was overshadowed last year by security footage of Solange Knowles in an elevator.

No matter the reason for the move, why can't we all agree that, if it's good enough for celebs, it should be good enough for the rest of us? Though there won't be any selfie czars watching us eagle-eyed every time we whip our smart phones out this evening, can we all agree to police ourselves in this self-imposed Monday night selfie ban?

It'll be hard, we know, especially given the following list of this evening's raddest happenings. But try your best to keep it in check. — Cory Graves

Garrison Keillor at Majestic Theatre
Though he's best known for his work on A Prairie Home Companion, tonight's solo offering from the acclaimed author, storyteller and humorist won't come with many of the frills of his radio program. During his one-man show, he'll be humorously discussing growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon and “late-life fatherhood,” all without much of his radio show's distractions. — Chase Whale

Star Wars Party at SISU
By the time 8 p.m. rolls around, you'll be so tired of people imploring the fourth of May to be with you, the only thing left to do will be to throw on some Star Wars cosplay and hit up this themed dance party. There'll be 30 DJs spinning here, with names like DJ Jedi, Han Cholo and Blake Ward. — CG

Fanboys at Alamo Drafthouse
No, you won't be able to celebrate National Star Wars Day by screening an early copy of the franchise's latest installment, but you can watch a movie about some Star Wars super fans trying to screen an early copy of the franchise's latest installment. That, and The Force Awakens trailer seven times in a row. — CG

African Amedia Pop-Up Teaser Performance at The Wild Detectives
African Amedia is a fictional television network created by Adu in order to showcase the stereotypical fashion that African Americans are portrayed in the media. It also serves as the basis of a one-night-only live performance scheduled to take place Sunday, May 10 at the African American Museum, at the opening of a satirical art exhibition that'll also include paintings, photography, video pieces and other art installations. This evening, a pop-up performance of the piece will go down at The Wild Detectives. — CG

Anndra Neen Trunk Show at Elements
New York-based designers Phoebe an Annette Stephens are behind the Anndra Neen line of jewelry. Their Mexican-crafted pieces, they say, are largely inspired by their grandmother, Annette Nancarrow, whose own jewelry was worn by Frida Kahlo, Helena Rubinstein and Peggy Guggenheim among others. Tonight, they'll be at Elements. — CG
