Born Jan. 8, 1947 and deceased Jan. 10, 2016, David Bowie is a revolutionary, gender-bending, storytelling rock ‘n roll icon. Join the Senate Theater to pay tribute to Bowie and “the alter ego that changed rock” Ziggy Stardust Jan. 11, 2020. All proceeds benefit the renovation and revitalization of the 1926 historic theater.
The evening’s highlights will include Bowie-inspired artwork, live organ tribute on the Mighty Wurlitzer, a screening of D.A. Pennebaker’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and a theater full of the best-dressed David Bowie-loving people in Detroit! The art and Senate merchandise will be available for purchase while What’s Snappin captures your memories of the evening at the Ziggy Stardust photo booth. Blake Hill will be spinning Bowie and glam rock vinyl and special guests Jay Clark Reid and Andrew Perrota will be selling drinks at the bar. At intermission, the individual who best embodies of the spirit of David Bowie will win the Golden Lightning Bolt.
