nD Festival Presents a Free Screening of Ziggy Stardust Tonight in East Nashville

Posted By on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 3:34 PM

After I had gotten about halfway through the recently published biography David Bowie: Starman, I realized that I still had absolutely no idea who the hell Bowie really is. It's a fine book, but Bowie's just too mysterious a subject, and it's almost impossible to nail down exactly what really makes him tick. It's that elusiveness, however, that makes him such a glamorous figure.

Tonight, an East Nashville party will feature a free outdoor screening of the legendary movie that attempted to crack the Bowie code back in 1973. Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars follows Bowie — or at least his stage personal Ziggy Stardust, aka the leper Messiah (well-hung and snow-white tan) — during a performance that was billed as Ziggy's last, and which many at the time thought would be Bowie's swan song, as well.

Come early and imbibe in a wine tasting courtesy of Woodland Wine Merchant, or sample some Ziggy Starcrunch ice cream from Pied Piper Creamery. The screening will start at dusk (roughly 7 p.m.) in the backyard of Fanny's House of Music (1101 Holly Street), and an after-party starts at 9 p.m. with Warthog, billed as Nashville's only Ramones cover band, at The 5 Spot.

It's all part of the nD Festival, a five-day Belcourt fundraiser that combines film, fashion and music. Ziggy's a perfect fit.
