David Bowie epitomized forward momentum. His Berlin Era of the late ’70’s was an artistic leap forward and produced some of his best music (i.e. the song “Heroes”). We’re mounting 2 shows at BOP STOP next week: on Fri 1/12, we explore the Berlin Era, and on Sat 1/13, we reveal his entire life and musical career, both shows complete with rare video, needle drops and live music from Vanity Crash. Tix are selling fast.
Free music at the Grog, an ambitious Angels at Ensemble, and a couple readings on death at Brews + Prose. The Cowslingers are back in full regalia, while Tailspinner hosts mask- and puppet-making workshops in Gordon Square. You’re running out of time to see The Jazz Age at CMA. It’s never easy to speak out against injustice, which is why the Maltz puts up big bucks to encourage kids to Stop The Hate. Pay it forward. –Thomas Mulready
