Don’t make the Bowie Mistake I made in 1973, 1974 & at least a dozen times since…

When I was a teenager it felt like I’d live forever.  By 18 or 19 I had lost that feeling of invincibility, but transferred some of its essence to a select group of celebrities whom I admired.  David Bowie was one of those lucky few. Brilliant, enigmatic, mysterious … in my mind, mythical … it felt like Bowie would live forever.

I had a chance to see the Ziggy Stardust tour in NYC, but for some reason it didn’t work out. Funny how I can’t remember what kept me from going, but if I had seen Bowie in 1973, I’m quite sure I’d have no problem recalling THAT experience today.

Then in 1974 I had a chance to see his Diamond Dogs tour when he came to Indianapolis. “But I want to see Ziggy,” I thought. (A friend who had gone to the show I was too “busy” to attend told me how “completely blown away” he was.)  I’ll just wait until he comes back around with that show.

Here’s the thing: Bowie never came back around with anything. Rather, he broke barriers and blew our minds for another 42 years … and every time I might have seen Bowie live there was always something keeping me from going, any sense of urgency lulled to sleep by my fabricated assumption that he’d be around forever.

When I saw “The Man Who Fell to Earth” (I think at the Harvard Square Theatre — still one of my favorite movies) I remember saying to myself I MUST see Bowie live someday.

Monday morning when I awoke to the news of Bowie’s death (which felt shockingly untimely) reality hit: “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do …” I’m never going to see Bowie live.

Vickie and I were just saying last week that we had to see Bowie on this next tour … and I was confident that we would because, even as recently as last week, it still felt like Bowie would live forever.  And he will through his music.  We still have that … here’s his latest masterpiece.

“The Good Old Salty Jazz Band” Tonight at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 1.7.2016

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

Happy New Year!  Here’s one resolution you should enforce: c’mon out this Thursday and see a RARE appearance of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band  at the RhumbLine. Caught enflagrante, these cats will curl your toes with their invigorating versions of famous early 20th century jazz, ten pin alley, tin pan alley-oop and great american schlongbook classics. There’s like nine of us, or mebbe even 13, depending on who remembers to show up. This is a rare event, and I guarantee your satisfaction or double your money back! Actually, it’s free! Showtime 8:30!

Hello everyone!
Fly and I are excited to come together in song this week in support of Pathways for Children, a local nonprofit whose mission — to educate, empower, and support local children and their families — is vital to our community. Every year, Pathways partners with local businesses for its annual toy and book drive, and has distributed over 1,000 toys to local children & families enrolled in their programming. This drive is special because it is truly neighbors helping neighbors: all toys and books donated stay in our North Shore community. So please, join us this Wednesday – come for the tunes, stay for the good cheer, and if you can, bring a new, unwrapped toy or book to donate!
See you there, and thanks! – Marina

Sax Gordon Returns to The Rhumb Line for Dave Sag’s Blues Party this Thursday 8:30pm 12.17.2015

dave sag bw rl

 

Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his projectile format and penchant for snake charming, this is the guy to take you into the Twilight Zone. Make you forget about that credit card bill due in January. He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one! After This Thursday, We’ll be off until January 7, when the good Old Salty Jazz Band returns for some musical mayhem.

Dave…
