Best Cry: David Bowie and Prince Tributes

Baltimore has a hard time getting over lost heroes, even if they technically had almost zero to no ties to the city. This year, we mourned the deaths of cultural icons David Bowie and Prince like they were our own. The tributes never ended; even Artscape—which took place three months after the death of Prince and seven after Bowie’s—included programming dedicated to the artists. Between karaoke nights and tribute performances taking place at just about every venue, not to mention the BSO’s concert covering Bowie’s greatest hits, Baltimore continues to grieve the loss of The Purple One and the Thin White Duke.
