It’s this Saturday and you’re all invited.
Arcade Fire and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band have announced plans to honor David Bowie with a memorial parade through the streets of New Orleans this Saturday, January 16. In the open Facebook event, they ask that people “dress in their best Bowie outfit or something more strange” and meet at Preservation Hall at 4:00pm.
Always ahead of the curve, Bowie was an early supporter of Arcade Fire, with his presence at their early shows alone acting as a boost. He later performed their song ‘Wake Up’ with them live and sang on the title track of the 2013’s album Reflektor. Revisit both below.
