Everyone: there is only so much room we can devote to Marcus Rubio, Chuck Kerr, Chris Maddin, et al in print. I make no excuses. They just happen to be out playing music ALL THE TIME. Seriously, I saw Kerr gig with We Leave at Midnight just last night.Rubio has like 12 shows this week. Now they and the Gospel Choir of Pillows, Deer Vibes, and Cartographers crew will present their cover of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars tonight at the Broadyway 50/50. I saw the same trio, plus pals, take on Wilco's opus Yankee Hotel Foxtrot last month, and as a person who played that album in her Jetta for two years straight, I frankly enjoyed the hell out of their flawless re-creation.
For many of us, tonight may be as close to a Bowie show as we'll ever get.
