Culture Vultures is delighted to make its debut at the Dublin Bowie Festival, Thursday, January 9 at The Workman’s club. The salon-themed event, now in its 5th year, is co-run by Irish Times music critic and arts writer, Tony Clayton-Lea, and booker/promoter, Andrea Keogh. 

 

The themed event at DBF will feature music and a panel discussion titled Boys & Girls Keep Swinging: David Bowie - Pioneer Of Gender Fluidity.

 

Panel discussion guests include Law Professor Alex Sharpe, author Darryl W. Bullock, and journalist/sexuality studies scholar Roe McDermott. Music is from Cork’s Jack O’ Rourke.

 

Law Professor Alex Sharpe has been involved in transgender law reform and activism for over 20 years. She has been writing about issues of gender, sexuality and law for over 25 years and is the author of over 80 publications. She has also published on David Bowie (‘Scary Monsters: the hopeful undecidability of David Bowie’ (2017) 11(2) Law and Humanities 228-244), and is currently working on a series of projects around Bowie’s creative methods, and the relationship between his art/music and ethics.

 

Described as ‘a veritable bard of the bent, broken and baroque’ by Andy Partridge (XTC), Darryl W. Bullock is a feature writer and author specialising in pop music history and LGBT issues. Bullock is the author of David Bowie Made Me Gay: 100 Years of LGBT Music.

 

Roe McDermott is a Journalist (Irish Times/Hot Press/Image), arts critic and Sexuality Studies Scholar. 

Jack O’ Rourke is one of those mercurial artists whose musical imagination and personality has made him an intriguing entity to his many fans. 


A songwriter who first came to prominence with his ode to misunderstood youth, ‘Silence’ - which became a torch song for the Irish Marriage Equality Referendum - Jack went on to release his debut album Dreamcatcher to massive acclaim, peaking at No.5 in the Irish album charts and drawing huge critical praise. 


Culture Vultures takes place at The Workman’s Club on January 09th as part of Dublin Bowie Festival.
