SEPTEMBER 23RD IS DAVID BOWIE DAY IN CHICAGO
“Coming Tuesday I feel better, even Mayor Rahm looks good...”
Kudos to Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, for declaring Tuesday, September 23rd (the opening day of David Bowie Is at the MCA), David Bowie Day in the Windy City.
Emanuel describes Bowie as “an undisputed global icon boasting a catalogue of 26* critically acclaimed studio albums,” whose “remarkable half-century career has bridged cultures and faiths while both transcending and fortifying the music, art, fashion & design, and theatrical canons.”.
Hopefully this accolade will catch on and in the future every day of the year will be Bowie Day somewhere on the planet.

Apologies to Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, David Bowie and the late Brian Duffy for the clumsy Photoshop application of the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt.
