Win a David Bowie "Serious Moonlight" DVD
It's time to redeem '80s era David Bowie. Look at the adorable floppy yellow hair, the highwaisted yellow pants. He's always been a handsome devil, that Bowie, and his 1983 look is very 2006 fashion forward. LAist and the friendly folks at Filter are giving away 2 DVDs. Just fill in the form below.
Three songs from "Let's Dance" are on this concert DVD, recent re-released with a bonus documentary. There are tons of his earlier songs, including "Golden Years," "Station to Station," "Rebel Rebel" and "Young Americans." If you want a preview, here's "Heroes" streaming (it was crummy for us when we tried it earlier today, but rain makes the cable modem very sad).
So sorry, this contest is closed.
