(Crocodile) BowieVision is an eight-person group featuring members of local lounge-pop mainstays the Dudley Manlove Quartet and new-wavey electronic act Purr Gato (who will also perform an opening set of their own) that amply plays David Bowie covers, but one-ups the traditional tribute-band formula with a projected video backdrop as part of the show. Their rumored setlist goes deep into the catalog, way past the “Rebel Rebels” and “Suffragette Cities,” even past the “Space Oddities” and “Life On Mars,” well into the “Young Americans,” “Ashes To Ashes,” and “China Girl.” It all sounds like a hell of a night for Bowie diehards, and it falling on Valentine’s Day makes it ideal for couples with a shared interest in the glam-rock legend. With Braxmatics.
