An Evening With(out) David Bowie, Parts 1 & 2 @ BOP STOP

When: Jan 13, 2018, 7:30pm - 11:00pm
Where: BOP STOP

An Evening With(out) David Bowie, Parts 1 & 2 @ BOP STOP

An Evening With(out) David Bowie, Part 1
Saturday, January 13, 7:30PM - 9PM, $15......or Parts 1 & 2 for $25

Part 1 opens with a 9-year-old David Jones, inspired by the film Don’t Knock The Rock claiming, “That was my ambition, to be in a band playing saxophone behind Little Richard.”

Following formal art school tutelage under the father of future megastar Peter Frampton, and a half dozen failed singles, bands, record labels and stage looks, he finally hits with the sci-fi folk rock novelty “Space Oddity.”

It would be three more years before his Ziggy Stardust character takes off, triggering a manic run of hit singles, bracing concept albums, and bizarre personas, each one diametrically opposed to the last.

After exploding worldwide with "Young Americans," Bowie hits rock bottom, as the excesses of mid-1970’s stardom threaten to engulf him.

Included in the show is a blistering live music set by Cleveland post-glam heroes Vanity Crash, performing selections from their 2017 release, "Phantasmagoria," including a tune featuring Bowie's longtime accompanist, Mike Garson, alongside Bowie favorites and period classics.

An Evening With(out) David Bowie, Part 2
Saturday, January 13, 9:30PM - 11PM, $15...... or both Parts 1 & 2 for $25

Part 2 begins with the artist living like a king, having achieved stardom far beyond imagination, but strung out on cocaine and subsisting on warm milk.

He flees his near-death existence in LA for the arid krautrock beat of Berlin, accompanied by the most unlikely of sidekicks, Iggy Pop.

Commencing with three acclaimed LPs known as “The Berlin Trilogy” in collaboration with Brian Eno, this session takes us through Bowie’s arena-sized celebrity with "Let’s Dance," and his not-always successful, but perpetually rewarding experiments in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

The session concludes with his mysteriously choreographed death following the symbol-laden albums "The Next Day" and "Blackstar ★", and includes a review of his newly released box sets and his final recordings.
