There are a few artists whose deaths might not feel as fresh to me as when they happened, but whose non-existence on this earth still feels a little like a gut-punch when I’m listening to their music. Prince is one. David Bowie is another. Technically, Bowie was my first concert (the first one I remember going to, anyway—my mom dragged me along to a date on his Glass Spider Tour when her girlfriend bailed; I was 7). BowieVision are a well-regarded local seven-piece of Bowie appreciators/musicians (led by singer Stefan Mitchell) who deliver note-perfect, showmanship-savvy selections spanning from earlier career cuts (“Space Oddity,” “The Man Who Sold the World”) to 1970s and ’80s era jams (“Young Americans,” “Fame,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Modern Love,” “China Girl,” “Let's Dance”) to 1995’s “I’m Afraid of Americans” (which is so relatable). And there are, indeed, some deep cuts! "Beauty and the Beast," "Slow Burn," "Never Get Old," "New Killer Star," "Slip Away," and "Boys Keep Swinging" among them. They even tap a few tracks off Bowie's brilliant swan song, Blackstar ("I Can’t Give Everything Away" and "Lazarus"), and manager Jeff Mosier has assured me that both will be played at this birthday party. I'm duly impressed. Should be a grand old time.
