It’s looking like we’re never going to stop mourning and celebrating David Bowie’s life and art. And why should we? They brought/bring too much joy to quit now. These days, we need all the spacey, upliftingly melancholy folk, glammed-up, funked-up rock, Eno-assisted dirges, graying-around-the-temples drum & bass, etc., that we can stuff into our beleaguered earholes. (The paranoia-inducing “Panic in Detroit” will never cease being my anthem.) Tonight’s Bowie birthday extravaganza includes a screening of Jim Henson’s 1986 musical dark fantasy Labyrinth (starring Bowie as the Goblin King), sing-alongs, a costume contest, “Bowie bags,” and other bundles of fun.
