Seattle Theatre Group and Seattle International Film Festival have teamed up for a BIG tribute glam rock party honoring David Bowie, the immortal rock god who passed on to a higher plane in January. It’s “Oh You Pretty Things: Glam Rock Party” and it’s happening THIS Friday, May 27, 2016 at The Neptune Theatre and features sing-a-long Bowie videos and performances by Bowie inspired burlesque stars. The headliners are the tribute band BowieVision who will perform their live versions of beloved hits by Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and all the other little goblin kings who lived in Maestro Bowie’s fevered brain.
It’s all followed by a dance party until 1 am where you can simultaneously celebrate and mourn his loss.
We’re guessing, lots and lots of people will go to this in their finest glitter rock attire. If you don’t already own glitter wedgies, we suggest you run out and grab some.
ALL the info and snag those tickets NOW before it does sell out.

Paying tribute to David Bowie? For BowieVision, it’s not a one-time proposition, it’s a way of life. Combining world-class vocals, deft musicianship, masterful stage presence, and stunning video projections, the BowieVision experience is simultaneously epic and intimate, an approach that resonates with audiences on a more profound level than mere impersonation ever could.
