David Bowie is is about to be not. Before it isn’t, the heroes have to be sorted from scary monsters (and super creeps)—via a Bowie quiz at MPavilion, presented by ACMI! One of the most daring, innovative artists in living memory is not well served by the hoary old pub quiz format. So he won’t be. Not only will phone use be encouraged, teams will also be organised with a balance of David dilettantes and Bowie buffs. It’ll be a collaborative dive into the pool of Bowie esoterica across fifty questions and a bonus musical round. Then, once prizes have been distributed: let’s dance! Will and Garrett Huxley will perform ‘Diamond Dogs’ in their customary glam, style-over-substance manner before we all have a chance to put on our red shoes and dance the blues to a concluding DJ set. Come alone or come with friends—let’s spend the night together.
