Tribute to David Bowie Benefits UVA Cancer Center

Saturday, February 13th 2016 - 8:00 pm
at The Jefferson Theater
110 E Main St.

The Jefferson Theater, in Charlottesville, pays tribute to David Bowie on Saturday, February 13 with proceeds from the night benefiting the UVA Cancer Center.  Come celebrate the man who influenced generations with his art & music while raising money to benefit the UVA Cancer Center.

David Bowie was a modern renaissance man, whose groundbreaking approach to composition & performance was as unparalleled as his far reaching impact that knows no end.  A true champion of “Sound & Vision,” or as Nile Rogers put it, he’s “the Picasso of Rock & Roll.”
The news of his passing was difficult to take for many, including the Charlottesville community of musicians.
The best way to express our loss is to come together and pay respects & tribute to Bowie’s trailblazing, shapeshifting, genre & gender bending career.  Even better, proceeds from the night will benefit the UVA Cancer Center.

Charlottesville celebrates the man who influenced generations with his art & music.
New Boss and Borrowed Beams of Light along with members of Secret Storm, We Are Star Children, Ships in the Night, Shagwüf, XPS and more will play songs that span the decades when Bowie, Ziggy Stardust & The Thin White Duke ruled the world
