Where are we now? Bowie Tribute Nights at Ivy House and Amersham Arms
Various Bowie events coming up over next few days and weeks.
Tomorrow night - Saturday 16th January - at the Ivy House (40 Stuart Road, Nunhead SE15 3BE) there's The David Bowie Spectacular Send Off. They say:
'Let's give our London boy the send off he deserves. It's simple: let's party to his tunes, have the Duke on the big projector screen and toast to his life and work all damn night long.
19:00: Decks up and spinning and Labrynth plus more footage on the big screen. Lovely Rob and Martine who both frequent and work at the pub will be playing their much loved records.
21:30: Resident DJ Billy, who entertained you for New Years brilliantly, will be seeing the night out on the decks.
This is all about the love of the man so of course it is FREE ENTRY. Not strictly fancy dress but I feel like Ziggy would approve... Let's Dance XXXXXXX'
