EVENT: Angie Bowie ('Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie')

Saturday, March 19 @ 1pm
ANGIE BOWIE
Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie
Free and open to the public
Facebook RSVP

Following her appearance at TRANNYSHACK: DAVID BOWIE TRIBUTE NIGHT, Angie
Bowie will be at A Different Light for a more intimate discussion of her influential part in the Bowie universe. She has written about it in her book, BACKSTAGE PASSES: LIFE ON THE WILD SIDE WITH DAVID BOWIE, which she will be signing at the event.

Angie Bowie: style icon, author, performer, counselor, former wife of David Bowie and role model for outsiders everywhere. It is widely accepted that Angie and Tony DeFries, Bowie’s legendary manager, were the two most significant influences on David’s early career.

Angie was the “It Girl” in London’s ‘In’ crowd and cultivated all that was weird and left-field. She introduced her husband to a variety of talented eccentrics who also contributed to David Bowie’s kaleidoscope of stage personas-these include his Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and Thin White Duke periods. The cultural impact of David and Angie Bowie in the 70s and beyond cannot be over-estimated.

EVENT: Marc Freden ('REALLY?!?: A Memoir By a Man Who's Not Quite Famous Enough')

Saturday, March 12 @ 4pm
MARC FREDEN
Really?!?: A Memoir by a Man Who's Not Quite Famous Enough
Free and open to the public
Facebook RSVP

REALLY!?! is the story of privilege and purgatory…and the road traveled to both. Told as a series of uniquely witty and insightful anecdotal observations, Marc Freden quite literally travels the world, as the host of a British television series, to find out just where and who he is in the world.

The memoir takes on such lauded institutions as Hollywood, Catholicism, the British Monarchy and fame while exploring Freden’s personal vulnerability in dealing with homosexuality, depression, molestation and relationships. It’s written with his unique blend of raw, self-deprecating humor and honesty—the same winning combination that made him a true international television personality.

Since the age of 9 years old, Marc Freden has known the value of an audience. At various times he has been a dancer, an actor, writer, producer, a television reporter, host and radio personality. A veteran of 25 years of production experience, he has had his hand in everything from local news to network primetime specials, series and event television.

Audiences came to know Freden’s quick-witted personality on the syndicated series "Extra." Then during his tenure as the Hollywood correspondent for Britain’s highest rated morning television program, "GMTV," Freden broke ground as a genuine international "personality"—unique, witty, irreverent...and always entertaining.
