CinemaSalem and Creative Salem Present “The Untold Story: Bowie/Rykodisc/Salem”

When David Bowie passed this year, the world lost an incredible artist, but little mention was made of Bowie’s important, but largely forgotten, ties to Salem.

On Thursday, May 12 at 8:30 pm, Cinema Salem and Creative Salem are presenting “The Untold Story: Bowie/

Rykodisc/Salem,” during which music fans can hear this fascinating story. This multi-media presentation will feature Bowie producer, Jeff Rougvie, and Boston-based band, Daily Pravda, playing David Bowie’s music. Tickets are available at www.CinemaSalem.com.

In 1989, Rykodisc, a tiny independent record label located on Pickering Wharf, was hand-picked by Bowie to curate his amazing body of work spanning 1969-1980, including classics like Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Young Americans, Low, Heroes, and Scary Monsters. What followed set a new standard for audio-visual presentation, but also re-affirmed David Bowie’s genius for a new generation and helped him rediscover his creative powers.One man behind the scenes in this amazing story was Jeff Rougvie, Rykodisc’s VP of Special Projects, who worked directly with Bowie on nearly 20 releases over 10 years.

During this special live event at CinemaSalem, Rougvie will weave the story of Bowie, Rykodisc and Salem, using visuals, snippets of music, and unseen material, accompanied by Boston’s own Daily Pravda, who will perform live versions of some of Bowie’s most memorable songs,followed by a Q&A session.

As the world mourns one of our era’s most creative artists, this event will bring to life David Bowie’s career, and offer a first-hand glimpse of his uniquely-gifted and chameleon-like genius. Jeff Rougvie has worked a wide range of artists including Big Star, Andrew Bird, Elvis Costello,Devo, Galaxie 500, comedian Bill Hicks, The Misfits, Mission of Burma, Morphine, Bob Mould & Sugar, The Raspberries, Ringo Starr, They Might Be Giants, Frank Zappa and many more. He currently consults on a variety of pop culture subjects and has started a new reissue label.
