In the words of the great man himself, there'll be plenty of people turning and facing the strange in Fortitude Valley on November 4. That's what happens when Brisbane's now-annual multi-part Bowie bonanza returns to the city's streets, complete with some real cool cats.
Event one: a screening of the Bowie-starring Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence — because there's much, much more to his film career than Labyrinth. Don't worry, events two and three will have you dancing in the streets in no time. Actually, the second part of the agenda is taking that literally.
Bowies Down Brunswick is exactly what it sounds like, and it's groovy as. Dress up as your favourite version of the all-round icon (we love his early '80s 'Modern Love' stylings ourselves), meet outside the New Globe Theatre, offer a gold coin donation for the Cancer Council and prepare to dance your way down to The Wickham with your fellow costumed Bowie lovers. Along the way, a selection of venues down will come alive with Bowie music, themed cocktails and more. Yep, it's basically a roaming Bowie party.
Then there's the third and final shenanigans of the day, aka a David Bowie Party. Dance to his hits and just continue to soak in the glorious that is one of the best performers to ever live. We can be heroes, indeed.
