Beloved WELSH-born CHICAGO punk rocker and visual artist JON LANGORD will perform with MEKON mate SALLY TIMMS as part of the upcoming exhibit at the MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART in CHICAGO dedicated to DAVID BOWIE. The two will headline a sold-out show on NOVEMBER 21st for the "BOWIE Changes" cover series which features musicians playing BOWIE tunes in their own unique form.
"DAVID BOWIE (the weird cross-dressy ancient seedling of punk) brought NEWPORT's wannabe football hooligans into the record stores and youth club discos," said LANGORD. "I admire my parents fortitude back in 1972 when my bedroom walls were plastered with pictures of NEWPORT COUNTY footballers and glam rockin' transvestites!"
The exhibit, titled "DAVID BOWIE Is," will run from SEPTEMBER 23rd to JANUARY 4th and feature lectures, films, and other additional performances throughout the upcoming months.
ROXY MUSIC's BRYAN FERRY, director TODD HAYNES ("I'm Not There," "Velvet Goldmine," "Mildred Pierce") and OF MONTREAL's KEVIN BARNES are scheduled to participate in lectures at the museum. A documentary titled "DAVID BOWIE Is Happening Now," directed by PULP's JARVIS COCKER, will be screened.
