Who says you need to wait for Halloween to don some spandex and glitter? It’s time to channel your inner glam rock persona for the annual Bowie Ball this Sunday at Santos Party House. If you’re unfamiliar with this time-honored New York tradition, it’s time to bone up on your Bowie knowledge and join the rest of the queen bitches for this costumed extravaganza. Hopefully you’re one of the lucky few who gets Columbus Day off, and if you’re not, f’ it, when else are you going to get the opportunity to rub elbows/feathers with B-52 leader singer, Fred Schneider and dance your ass off to all of Bowie’s greatest hits? There’s enough material there to last a whole weekend.
The festivities kick off with a special screening of The Hunger and drink specials at 8pm. Did someone say Susan Sarandon and killer monkeys? There will be DJ’s all night and plenty of live performances. Just in case you’re not skilled with fake lashes and teasing comb, there will be a makeover team at the venue to assist you in your transformation. And for the seasoned glamazons, there will be a costume contest with a special grand prize. Either way, you’re guaranteed to wake up the next day, covered in glitter and a smile on your face.
