David Bowie Tribute

Here's some advance news about a special David Bowie tribute show here in my hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Naturally, yours truly will be there in the audience, enjoying the songs and partaking in a few adult beverages. In case you don't know, Bowie is a very influential artist in rock music today. Many new bands and musicians have discovered his considerable discography as well as the other musicians throughout his lifetime that are in Bowie's orbit. Some of these would be Iggy Pop, The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Mott The Hoople, Brian Eno, Moby, Kraftwerk, T-Rex, Roxy Music, Trent Reznor, Blur, Placebo, Boy George and Lulu.
Whew!
The local Minneapolis/St. Paul rock scene is no exception. Many new bands cite Bowie and his guitar player from the 1970s, Mick Ronson, as huge influences in their style and tastes. Obviously, the listed artists on this roster are among the best of those.

Some local friends from BowieNet will be meeting up with me, hopefully. And if readers of this blog wanna come down and join in the fun that would be a welcomed happening. But it's important to remember that all discussion of politics will be left outside the doors of First Avenue nightclub.

As Bowie sez, "Love on ya!"
