Bowie’s Berlin: In Battery

Next week, Arts Brookfield presents an exciting 3-night all-star indie rock lineup performing David Bowie's Berlin Trilogy led by Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg, curated by WNYC's John Schaefer.

In the Winter Garden of Brookfield Place, you can immerse yourself in these unique "New Sounds Live" events which will feature the performance of an entire album each night:

  • Wednesday, October 17th: 1979's "Lodger"
  • Thursday, October 18th: 1978's "Heroes"
  • Friday, October 19th: 1977's "Low"

Why are these albums considered the "Berlin" trilogy? Bowie had moved to the city, and these 3 years "would be one of Bowie’s most productive periods".

You'll hear these hit songs (and many others:) "Sound and Vision", "Heroes", "Song of the Silent Age", "Look Back in Anger" and "Boys Keep Swinging".

These are free performances, open to the public, with no tickets required. And just a 3 minute walk from The Verdesian!

Find out more about the exceptional artists performing these nights - including special guest Carlos Alomar who was David Bowie’s rhythm guitarist and music director for almost thirty years, and whose songwriting credits include “Fame” with Bowie and John Lennon - on Brookfield Place's site.
