Music itself and the community that embodies it is still reeling from last month’s passing of the legendary David Bowie. Recently Lady Gaga paid tribute to Bowie at The Grammys by putting her own spin on the Ziggy Stardust look and performing a stunning medley of the Starman’s material. Wednesday night at The BRIT Awards, Lorde performed “Life On Mars” with Bowie’s backing band to critical acclaim. Locally in Providence, Bowie Love just took place at The Salon last week, featuring performances from rock acts Holy Roller High and The Sugar Cones along with the subtle soulful acoustics from “The Maiden Of Madness” Stephanie Carey among others.
Before February ends there will be another all-star Bowie tribute happening in The Creative Capital with immense talents taking the stage this Saturday.
It sounds like it’s going to be a blast and with the amount of musical aptitude in one building, who knows what’ll happen? There might be even a once in a lifetime collaboration for the ages going on. All the proceeds from the show will go to benefit the arts education non-profit New Urban Arts and the LGBTQQ organization Youth Pride, Inc.
