In the words of the great man himself, there'll be plenty of people turning and facing the strange in Fortitude Valley on Saturday, November 10. 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: drinks, arcade games and a whole heap of David Bowie tunes at Netherworld from 5pm, where wearing your love for the great man will nab you discounts. 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 Netherworld, offer a gold coin donation for the Cancer Council and prepare to dance your way down to The Osbourne 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 an Aladdin Sane 45th Anniversary Party. From 7pm, and for a $10 entry fee, you can 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.
