Celebrate David Bowie Day with Matt Roan’s Bowie for Thompson Chicago Mix


image001This Tuesday, September 23rd, Young Americans all across Chicago will be celebrating the Golden Years of Ziggy Stardust himself on David Bowie Day. And what better way to honor the musical genius than with acurated mix by Thompson Chicago Creative Spirit and DJ extraordinaire, Matt Roan? The official hotel partner of the MCA’s David Bowie Is exhibit, this list was inspired by Thompson Chicago and of course the incomparable work of David Bowie. From the well-known hits to his lesser known work as a producer, the Bowie for Thompson Chicago mix is the perfect way to get into the David Bowie zone.

Need even more Bowie in your life? Thompson Chicago has you covered with their Day & Night with David Bowie offer, which invites guests to explore the world of the eclectic entertainer with a tour through the much anticipatedDavid Bowie Is exhibit, including a private meet and great with the MCA concierge, all scheduled by Thompson Chicago. To prepare you for your day, the hotel will even start you off with a delicious complimentary continental breakfast for two. After delving into the life and works of Bowie, guests can indulge in their own creativity with a build-your-own Ziggy Stardust cocktail kit for two that can be enjoyed within the walls of the stylish sanctuary of your room at Thompson Chicago.

I’d love for you to share this amazing playlist with your readers as well as let them know about Thompson Chicago’s great offers surrounding the MCA’s David Bowie Is exhibit. Please let me know if I can provide you with any additional information (I’ve included more info on the package below), as I’d be more than happy to help. Have a great day and here’s to David Bowie Day!
