Saturday: Tim Kaye plays Ziggy Stardust on a Piano (A Tribute to David Bowie)

Feb. 20

When David Bowie died last month, the response here in the city and across the world and on the internet was heartening. Everybody had a thought or a feeling or an opinion on Bowie and everybody has a different era or moment that means so much to them. It's rarefied air that Bowie breathed, but I don't think there will be a similar response to a musician passing like this because he contained so many multitudes (I don't think even Dylan will mean so much to so many types of people). A month out from Bowie's death, check out Tim Kaye performing all of Bowie's "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" on the piano. It should be great and oddly moving and also bends Bowie back to some of his influences such as piano-fueled ’50s rock or Jacques Brel. And for what it's worth, this isn't another Bowie tribute or one come late to the game or anything (not that there's anything wrong with that, more Bowie tributes, please), but a reschedule of an event that was supposed to happen during last month's blizzard. 9 p.m., Joe Squared, 33 W. North Ave., (410) 545-0444,, $7. (Brandon Soderberg)
