Blackstar by Leah Kardos – Book Launch + Disco
February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 1:00 am
Blackstar Theory: The Last Works of David Bowie takes a close look at David Bowie’s ambitious last works: his surprise ‘comeback’ project The Next Day (2013), the off-Broadway musical Lazarus (2015) and the album that preceded the artist’s death in 2016 by two days, ★ (pronounced Blackstar). The book explores the swirl of themes that orbit and entangle these projects from a starting point in musical analysis and features new interviews with key collaborators from the period.
To celebrate the UK release of the book, published by Bloomsbury, we’re having a launch party at London’s “private members’ club for the surrealistically distinguished” – Vout-O-Reenees! There’ll be readings and a Q&A with the author, conducted by Arsalan Mohammad (creator of the podcast David Bowie: Album to Album), a signing of the book and a Bowie disco where you can dance the rest of the night away (the venue is open til 1.30am).
Please dress appropriately!
This event has sold out except for members who must email or message direct for reservations. Many Thanks.
