Thursday, May 12 – Turn and Face the Strange: A Bowie Tribute
Katie Ball, our favorite cheerleader of all things local and awesome, is apparently ready to see America. She left her gig as director of programming at Urban ReThink, sold a ton of her stuff and is finally ready to hit the road and, we dunno, find herself? She calls it an adventure, and why not? To help fund the low-budget, Sundance-style heartwarming journey of discovery, she’s putting on this tribute to Ziggy Stardust himself, David Bowie. (If you haven’t seen the show poster with Ball in Ziggy attire by local artist Brett Barr, seek it out now.) Of course, some of her friends will be there to help see her off, including musicians Joseph Martens, Greg Reinel, the Actomatics and many more. We love you, Katie. Now get out of our state. –Justin Strout (with Joseph Martens, David Gibbs, Steve Krone, the Dyin Days, Greg Reinel, Jonathan Silva, the Actomatics, Brian Chodorcoff & Katie Ball, David Schweizer; 8 p.m. at Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave.; $6; 407-898-5070; willspub.org)
