A Live Music and Burlesque Tribute to David Bowie
Instead of shopping on Black Friday, come worship at the church of Bowie.
All the Burlesque you want, all the Bowie you need!

Luparelli’s Bowie Tribute show must be seen to be believed!


The holidays are approaching once again, which means it’s time for the glorious return of Bowie-flavored burlesque. Niki “Starbust” Luparelli and her all-girl Total Blam Blam David Boobie Band bring back to OBERON their lascivious tribute to the Thin White Duke and the female form.

Rather than pushing through the market square on Black Friday, driving like a demon from station to station, and running wild through a million dead-end streets in search of Christmas bargains, you should instead spit in the eyes of fools, put on your red shoes, and run to the center of things—OBERON, that is—where each table offers a seat with the clearest view, and femme fatales emerge from shadows, performing to the best of Bowie, ALL NIGHT LONG.


There are a lot of ways you can spend your Black Friday, and most involve waiting in lines or shoving through crowds to get a killer discount and to finish up your Christmas shopping. Of course, this only appeals to certain people. Traditional Black Friday bargain hunting isn’t for everyone, and some of us are looking for something a little more glamorous to do on Friday. Take a trip through the eclectic songbook of David Bowie with Niki Luparelli… accompanied by the Burlesque dancers of Oh! You Pretty Things! The show is filled with comedy, a nostalgic soundtrack from the famous glam rocker, and tons of gorgeous and talented dancers that “Ziggy Stardust” himself would approve of. Take a break from holiday-themed chaos that fills the city this time of year and enjoy this “Moonage Daydream.”

Whether you are a young American or in your golden years; a diamond dog pull out of an oxygen tent or a cat person putting out the fire with gasoline; the prettiest star or a spider from mars; a scary monster or a super creep; you would be a lad (or lassie) insane if you didn’t experience the sound and vision of Niki Luparelli as she tears through the David Bowie songbook.
