THIS IS THE LAST LOSERS LOUNGE OF 2004!!!
The Losers Lounge presents:
The return of The Loser That Fell To Earth - The Loser's Lounge tribute to David Bowie!!!
It's been many years and many many requests for an encore since The Losers Lounge first packed the house with their unique take on the songs and styles of David Bowie. Due to overwhelming demand, we've decided to end the 2004 season with a big bang by bringing back Ziggy Stardust, The Spiders, The Thin White Duke, The Young Americans, David Jones, Major Tom and all the young dudes that make Bowie's catalogue, closet and career so amazing.
We look forward to seeing you at The Losers Lounge this October 1, 2, 8 and 9th at Fez under Time Cafe!
A big Bowie fan that knows his stuff when it comes to the music of David Bowie had this to say about The Loser's Lounge Bowie tribute:
This is an institution on the Downtown NY scene. Every few months they put on a huge show featuring a classic artist. The last Bowie one was pretty good. The band is kick-ass and a different singer sings one song each, usually about 25 songs in total. Some of the singers are really great, in local bands with record deals.
The occasional secretary-by-day, or pub owner gets on the stage and makes a dog's meal of the song, but that's all part of the fun. I don't know who's in this one, but you can see that they have to run four shows to accommodate all the ticket buyers. Highly recommend.
I forgot to say, the 'big Bowie fan' who sent in the above recommendation is a producer chap called Tony Visconti... Seems to know his onions.

If you're in NY on the above dates, you really should make the effort to get along... only wish I could be there too. :-(
