Under siege by the enemies of Music and Fun, and threatening to be closed, Suffragette City Music Hall reaches out across the dimensions to its sister club here on Earth, Great American Music Hall for one night only!

Featured performers are: Barry Syska's Fantasy Orchestra (http://www.myspace.com/barrysyska) and 5 Cent Coffee (http://www.myspace.com/fivecentcoffee) and DJ MzSamantha (Clockwork, The Box). The trans-dimensional warp will be worked by MC Psychokitty, and of course the key ingredient is you, as we all come together for BOWIE BALL!!!

You might have heard of Bowie.

In the 60's he was Davey Jones, a potential British Invader who's name was robbed from him by a Monkey. Still, who can forget The Laughing Gnome?

In the 70's he was Major Tom, The Man Who Fell to Earth and Sold the World, Ziggy Stardust, The Diamond Dog, and The Thin White Duke...

In the 80's he rose from the Ashes, turned into a vampire, was promoted from Duke to King (of the goblins - talk about Scary Monsters!), fell into Modern Love with a China Girl, and we all took shelter Underground as The World Fell Down...

In the 90's he dawned a White Tie, took a step Outside, and became an Earthling.

This is our chance to celebrate EVERYTHING Bowie. All in one night.

It promises to be an event to remember! Come in costume, come to spectate, come to dance, but you'll regret it if you don't come.

Dance lessons for "Absolute Beginners" from 8:30-9:45 consist of two rotations and three instructors teaching Swing, Waltz and Blues dancing. In these lessons you'll learn the basics required to fully participate in the Ball to follow.

DJ sets by MzSamantha from Clockwork and The Box as well as special guests to be announced!

$15 in advance, $20 door.
