Absolute Bowie plays Digbeth for Macmillan

on January 14, 2016

Absolute Bowie, Europe’s David Bowie Tribute band, is performing a celebration of Bowie’s work at Alfie Bird & The Oobleck, Digbeth.

The event will run Friday, on 15th January from 7 pm. All the profits will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, one of the largest British charities supporting people affected by cancer.

Damien Fell, from Alfie Bird & The Oobleck, wants to celebrate Bowie’s life as a fan after heavily influenced by his music from a young age. At the same time, Damien wants also to give something back to Macmillan Cancer Support:

“The fact that this iconic figure has been taken away from us has personally resonated with both myself and co-owner Andrew, as we have both been affected by Cancer by those close to us passing.”

“We saw this as a great opportunity to raise money for a cause that means a lot to us. Bowie was many a people’s hero, and the epitomy of rock star status, its only right that we send him off in a manner he would have appreciated.”

The band will  be playing 2 sets with Mazzy Snape, Chris Wise and Joey Smith deejays. People are encouraged to dress up as Bowie for the occasion, with best costume winning a £50 bar tab on the night.

Tickets cost £12.50 and are available here.

The band, comprised of five members, has been performing David Bowie’s music for the last 8 years.
