BOWIE Tribute Concert – 1/21 Athens, GA

The Bowie Tribute concert last night in Athens was amazing. Perfect. Cathartic. Needed. Brilliant. All those things. The band put this show together in two weeks – rehearsed, booked a venue, advertised. And the crowd that showed up was completely amazing, such an interesting mix of people all there for the love of Bowie. The band was really great, especially the lead guitarist who did a ripping solo at the end of “China Girl” (I wish I’d recorded that!!). The show was basically a greatest hits concert, and it was pretty incredible to hear all the ways that Bowie impacted popular music. The crowd ate it up! There was one big staging surprise, and that was a trapeze artist dressed as Major Tom during “Space Oddity”. It was really quite beautiful.
