MISS BOWIE AND THE NEW KILLER STARS
Our unofficial Nottingham Craft Beer Week opening ceremony. Live music from female-fronted David Bowie tribute with a few unique twists. Miss Bowie and the New Killer Stars aim to do justice to the genius of David Bowie's music with authentic and heartfelt performances of their interpretations of his songs, at the same time as paying homage to the original versions. Lead vocalist Jane Roberts says “We are pretty sure David would have approved [of a female singer], his whole ethos on androgyny, boundary shattering, and (most importantly) on love, is something very close to our hearts.” Free entry. Drinks offers. Strictly over 18’s.
