Saturday, August 19th, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: The Fall and Rise of John Elderkin & Moonbeams No Mas! Live!
A Sequel to “Ziggy Stardust” in Three Acts
David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars promised that the world would end in five years… but we’re still here.
The Fall and Rise of John Elderkin and ¡Moonbeams No Mas! picks up where the story left off. The record works as a rock opera, with characters and plot, but it is not a musical homage to Bowie. Instead, John Elderkin has collected a group of fellow North Carolinians to create their own Everyperson’s epic story of hope, loss, and resilience.
And a trip to the moon.
This incredible multi-media extravaganza features members of local rock legends The Old Ceremony, Hindugrass, The Popes, The Veldt, The Connells and The Pre-Raphealites. If that isn’t enough, they MAY be joined by members of Ben Folds Five and the Pressure Boys. The chaos is overseen by Mastermind John Elderkin who will take you on a cosmic journey like no other. Tin foil hats for all comers — guaranteed cosmic brain protection throughout the show.
