Join us saying goodbye to David Bowie…

Like you, we were saddened and shocked to hear of David Bowie’s recent death. For once, the overwhelming outpouring of emotion was truly justified.

As NottsVinylSocial (with our pal Chris), we want to celebrate Bowie’s music and the massive impact he’s had on popular culture.

So we’re putting on a special “Bowie Night” upstairs at Lincolnshire Poacher, Mansfield Road, Notts on Friday 5th February. We will be playing his game changer LP, Ziggy Stardust, plus a choice selection of cuts by Bowie, his own influences and artists he’s influenced over the years.

We’d love you to join us to talk Bowie, enjoy his music and say goodbye to one of the biggest musical icons of the last 50 years.

Tunes start at 8.30pm and it’ll cost you nought to walk in. See you there.
