Oh! You Pretty Things: David Bowie & Elvis Presley Birthday Bash

On Sunday, January 19, the glam-obsessed gang behind the Oh! You Pretty Things party celebrated the birthdays of two of the most extravagantly glam figures in music history, David Bowie and Elvis Presley. (You don’t think Elvis was glam? Check that eyeliner). With performances from This Ambitious Orchestra, Michael T & the Vanities, Tyburn Saints, the Sons & Heirs and boylesque star Brewster (among many others), there certainly was an abundance of glam on the Le Poisson Rouge stage—and there was even more, perhaps, in the crowd itself. As Bowie himself said way back in ’73: “One day, though it might as well be someday, you and I will rise up all the way, all because of what you are—the prettiest star.” Or as Elvis declared: “I'm not trying to be sexy. It's just my way of expressing myself when I move around."
