We Can Be Heroes: A David Bowie Tribute Concert- Ordway Ceter for the Arts- Sept 8, 7:30pm

Local artists celebrate the life of David Bowie through his music in a one -night only concert setting performance. As a teenager, Bowie’s dream was to write musicals. 5 decades later, more than 60 albums, 25 movies, and a hit Broadway musical in Lazarus, his impact on music and culture is irrefutable. Described by Rolling Stone as “the greatest rock star to ever fall to this or any other world,” David Bowie blazed a trail in music, fashion, art, and most of all self–expression. Cost: $37- $47
DO: Concert




Lantern Light Festival- Canterbury Park- Sept 7- Oct 22nd

Vulcan Booya- Macini’s- Sept 10, 11am

Booya is going to be sold at Mancini’s this year rain or shine. No need for a reservation or table- just head down to West 7th to get a bowl. Bring a container and take some home. Booya will be available at 11am and will run until sold out. Also new this year is a silent auction to benefit Bridgeview School and live entertainment by Copperhead Creek. Not sure what Booya is? It is a Belgian(most-likely although many countries claim its origin) stew that takes about 24 hours to make, but usually sells out in no time. This is pretty much just an upper-Midwest kind of thing. Cost: Not listed
