Cross-Faded Cinema

This event is in the past
Mon, Jan 23
Here-After at the Crocodile Belltown (Seattle)
This is an in-person event
This month's installment of Cross-Faded Cinema is a must for David Bowie fans. I mean, sort of. Probably. Here's the thing: The Man Who Fell to Earth, starring Bowie as an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth to escape his dying home planet (ironic), is either a brilliant example of vital experimental '70s cinema or goofy and poorly aged schtick that's managed to secure cult-like status because it is so over-the-top-art-house weird. Regardless of where you stand on the film in general, this Monday night DJ Nicfit will present the 1976 sci-fi staple in an entirely new way. For the past year he's been crafting an all-Bowie remix to play along with the movie, Dark Side of the Moon/The Wizard of Oz style. Bowie starred in the film, but the soundtrack was Bowie-free—this is a mash-up decades in the making. Delight in its weirdness! Giggle at the exaggerated sex scenes and postcoital ping-pong! To really go all in on the Bowie theme, grab an Under Pressure cocktail at the bar—Ransom Old Tom Gin, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, and Benedictine are mixed with creme de cassis, guava nectar, orange bitters and soda.
