From the label:

The festival is our best attempt at honoring the shared birthdays of rock legends David Bowie and Elvis Presley, two of the most loved and influential artists of the previous century. True characters and legends of rock n’ roll. The music goes all night on two different stages featuring multiple local and regional up-and-coming bands from the surrounding areas. We love showcasing local talent that want to honor the two icons by mixing their sets with cover songs from both artists along with their originals tunes. We have a “Oh You Pretty Things” costume/fashion contest, which encourages all to come out in their best costumes. We have themed games, themed food, Bowie Face painting and an appearance by heralded burlesque troupe, the Dem Damn Dames. It is a wild night that we plan to do twice in two amazing cities and it is all about the preservation of rock n’ roll!

More information on the event may be found at Splice Records’ website. Advance tickets may be purchased online here.

Tonight’s line-up includes Pecos Hank, Brian Scartocci, Bayou City Funk, Leigh Sinclair, Sam Turner & The Cactus Cats, Flower raves, Swimwear Department (performing the Labyrinth soundtrack), and Howard and the Nosebleeds.

Doors open at 7pm. Costumes are encouraged.
