Blackstar: A Burlesque Tribute to David Bowie for Out Youth
May 28, 2016 @ 8:30 pm - May 29, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Aetheria Lovecraft and the Austin burlesque community are proud to present a night of intergalactic wonder and visual stimulation as we respecfully pay homage to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most iconic heros.
On his birthday January 8th, David Bowie released what would be his last and final album “Blackstar”. 2 days later his passing took the entire creative world by surprise. What he left us with was an iconic final piece of work that will be forever analyzed and interpreted as one of the most legendary farewells in music history. Even in death, it is no surprise that that his entire body of work continues to inspire artists of all calibers to create and live out loud.
We invite you all to a night of color, variety, and sparkling spectacle as we join together to celebrate Bowie’s life and the work he made his mark on the world with. Featuring burlesque, aerial, drag and variety acts from some of the best stage performers this side of central Texas.
All proceeds for this event will be going to benefit Out Youth. Out Youth serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ (lesbian/gay/bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning) youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults.
