Obviously, 2016 kicked off with some heavy losses, and we went from Bowie's birthday to the release of "Blackstar" to the news of his death. Music fans were stunned. So, what is there to do but pay tribute and celebrate the life and art of Ziggy Stardust? The Casbah has a full celebration in store, including the Schizophonics as Bowiephonics, Ariel Levine performing "Blackstar" in its entirety, and DJs spinning the hits and deep cuts all night long. It's gonna be a party. Makeup is not required, but it is highly recommended. Meanwhile, at Soda Bar, Portland's Hannah Yuen drops in with her "witchy, somber" tunes, Winston's hosts a benefit for Standing Rock and Blonde hosts a benefit for the Women's March on Washington.
