It takes a lot to stand out in this town. Bands and entertainers are a dime a dozen, and quality cover or innovative, hilarious "tribute" acts fill venue lineups year-round. The First Church of the Sacred Silversexual, however, is a glittery entity all its own. Raucous and roiling with glam-rock glee, it's an orgasmic sensation of all things David Bowie wrapped in tinfoil and pumped full of sparkly gospel soul. The boisterous crew of theatrical musicians and singers packs onto stages and blows the Bowie horn: All ye who enter here, know the Thin White Duke's (or Ziggy Stardust's, or Alladin Sane's) name. The oft-adoring crowd, with lyrics sheets in hand, responds in time. It's a Suffragette City spectacle that "tap dances on the lines between religion and revelry, beatitude and blasphemy, rock show and revival." Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!
