The Day The Thin White Duke Came To Uptown

On January 15, 2004, David Bowie became a part of Uptown's folklore when he dropped in to the Uptown Snack Shop (4668 North Broadway, where Spoil Me Salon & Spa is now) to do a photo shoot there for Audi (pictured above).  Legend has it that he arrived unannounced.

Somewhere there's a five-minute video taken that day, but we can't find it online. If you know a devoted Bowie fan, find out and let us know.

Here's to you, David Jones. You were never boring.


  1. Woah, that's amazing!! I wish I had been there.

  2. Speaking of Music....Don't forget to see G Eazy and ASA$P at the Aragon on Jan 15th. These rappers will bring together the stones and disciples and lots of kids from the suburbs. I imagine there will be plenty of gunfire after the show right outside where I live. I wonder why these shows are allowed to go on, it's like lighting a match inside a gas can. Does anybody realize what's happening?

  3. The CAPS Beat meeting is tomorrow evening. Maybe it's worth showing up and voicing some concern?
