Well what can I say.. It’s as fun as Bowie himself. Full of outfits, text, video and drawings/art (some of which are bowie’s own) its just a great show..
I went last night with a friend whose a member so no queuing or worry about sold out tix. It’s worth having membership if you can afford it..
Some of the most suprising bits were his paintings which he’d made when living in Berlin, recovering from cocaine addiction. He lived with iggy pop too! Also seeing his repertoire of movies I hadn’t heard of. Definetly going to be renting some of those soon.
Otherwise original written lyrics and various snippets of history were what the show made it most successful for me. Only downfall was of course the ‘packedness’ and the constant spliced together bowie songs. Would have been nice just to hear the whole song with little breaks in inbetween. Also some of his less famous rather than hits..
Lastly one bit I found v sweet was bits of fan mail/memrobillia, there was even a tissue with Bowie lipstick on it!
Definetly worth going to all in all :)

So yesterday I sinned a bit by buying from cass art. In my defence they’re the only ones who sell seawhite and Brighton sketchbooks AND I really wanted some murano paper. Alas they’re prices were good. Had a little chat with the dude behind the till n he said the boss who sacked me (reason y I try not to support as it was unjust and she was a nut job) was still at the flagship store!
To ease my pain he gave me a £1 off voucher for an art show. Only meant to get it for over £20. Aww :)
Otherwise I went to an arty gathering at my friends last night n met some interesting people who I hope to exhibit with next yr!
And she made cottage pie n we drank LOTS of red wine. Only downfall was tube closed at 12 so I get to get night buses home! It took a bit long but as I haven’t done that since my birthday it was fine…
Beautiful antique plates on Kensington church st. Would be nice to illustrate…
