Get Ziggy With It...
and other glamtastic glory stories
Beef, Beer, Bikes & Bowie
How do you recapture the glitter-dusted, fixed-gear magic of last year's David-Bowie-inspired bike share benefit concert, an event that was dialed up from the arena-rock age and transported straight into downtown Collingswood?
Bike Share Director Joseph Bonaparte doesn't have all the answers just yet—but he's working on it.
Get Your Ziggy On

“The first time I heard Ziggy Stardust, I was in a record shop, and it came on, and I had to be somewhere, but I couldn’t leave without hearing the next song, and the next. Now whenever I hear that record, I get that same feeling. It’s great start-to-finish. And it dawned on me one day that it would be fun to put together a band to play it, the whole thing, with one singer after another.” That’s Kev Monko, musical director of the conglomeration of some two dozen local musicians dubbed Candy Volcano, whose sole purpose is to play David Bowie’s 1973 glam rock classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars in its effervescent entirety, in order and in appropriately glammy costumes and make-up which they will be doing at the Underground Arts on Saturday night.
