What better way to kick of South By Southwest Interactive weekend than with a costume party tribute to one of the funkiest white boys to take the Soul Train stage? No, not Elton. Think Ziggy Stardust. The first thing that may pop into your head is silver pom-pom ponytails with white blinged out bell-bottoms and platforms. Or, maybe some Labyrinth-inspired leotard pants to leave plenty of room for you to boogie on down for some serious Soul Train-inspired line dancing? You choose.
Flaunt it all at the Spider House Ballroom on Saturday, March 9, and shake it all night with DJ Manateemann and Austin’s premier David Bowie tribute band, Super Creeps. The group is composed of some of Austin’s most talented musicians including Claude McCann (Afrofreque, Charanga Cakewalk), John Nelson (El John Selector) and guitar assassin for hire Harmoni Kelly.
Spider House Ballroom is located at 2906 Fruth St. Doors are at 9 p.m. Music at 10 p.m. 21+ welcome. Cover is $10 or $8 with costume. Advance tickets are available online here. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
