Due to the severe weather impacting the east coast this weekend, we are postponing both of Grace’s remaining 9:30 Club shows in Washington DC. The Friday Jan. 22nd and the Saturday Jan. 23rd shows will be postponed until future dates that will be announced shortly. Tickets for these two shows will be honored on the new dates. We tried to make the best of the situation by moving the Friday show earlier in the evening, but the storm is now on track to arrive hours before originally predicted. In the interest of safety of the fans, band, crew, and 9:30 Club staff we have to be cautious and postpone. We encourage everyone to be safe during the storm, and look forward to the opportunity to come back again to DC and the 9:30 Club. – GP HQ
“David Bowie was my first true love. Alien and deeply human all at once, he kept us riveted from one album to another. Every record, every film, every nuance of his performances gripped me and kept me wondering what would happen next. Always changing; yet true to character, he taught us that fantasy and reality both have equal power in life.
This past Saturday after hearing he had passed away, I put down my work at the recording studio and watched the news as people gathered in his birthplace of Brixton to pay tribute. The reality of the loss hit the world hard, and I felt that universal ache. He inspired so many brave journeys for me, it felt fitting to stop what I was doing & create something to share in honor of the one and only David Bowie.
This song originally appears in a beautifully bizarre dream sequence of the 1986 film Labyrinth. The scene was riveting to watch as a three-year-old, and the song still resonates deeply, and has never felt more true, or more relevant. If you’re a Bowie fan, I hope you all can find a little comfort in this song, and if you aren’t..well…that’s fine too.
A new show has been added in Chattanooga on Jan. 13th, and several shows have sold out, including one of the nights in Birmingham, all three shows in DC, and the Jackson Hole and Missoula shows. Get your tickets while they’re still available!
