Set to begin at 7 p.m., the event will benefit Keep a Child Alive, Bowie’s charity of choice, she said. All tickets are $25.
“There are many of us lurking behind closed doors, silently grieving a man whose music we loved, a man who gave so many of us permission to stand outside the mainstream during those awkward teenage years,” Green said.
“This is a chance for us to come together and celebrate someone who had tremendous impact on so many of our lives.”
Local musicians and Bowie fans will participate in the event in the Lucille Lortel Barn, where they will play some of his best-loved hits, she said.
Light food and drinks will be provided.
The mission of Keep a Child Alive is to realize the end of AIDS for children and families, by combating the physical, social and economic impacts of HIV, according to Green.
Bowie, an English singer, songwriter and musician, who also worked as an actor and record producer, died Jan. 10 at age 69.
