Seen as a hero to so many, I am indeed referring to sir David Bowie. Tragically victimised to the evil that is cancer, the artist bequeathed his final record, Black Star, before he gracefully went to rest one last time, early 2016.
An unfortunate event that affected so many, David Bowie’s passing subsequently inspired an influx of events, artworks and recorded renditions in honour of the fallen artist’s career. In saying that, why not grab seventeen bands to dedicate their appreciation for Bowie through a series of cover songs?
Being a live show, seventeen performances may seem excessive, so it’s important to note that each and every act performing Cake Shop’s ‘Golden Tears’ will experience a changeover once every ten or so minutes. In other words, each act will perform a maximum of two songs; depending on what they select and how they plan on executing their version. The final band, Th’ Covercave All Stars will feature a stack of members from neighbouring bands performing a full set to round out the night.
Limited to a secret of what each band will deliver, expect a range of Bowie classics carried out in an array of different styles by this abundant group of talent.
Home Lives will share the stage with the likes of Sam Kogon, Fly Ashtray, Paper Fleet and a stack more.
Fancy dress is very much encouraged, with the top five standouts receiving a prize for their efforts and craftsmanship. There will be other goodies available on the night, as well as a donation box to appropriately raise funds for cancer research.
