The first time #DavidBowie played here

In October of 1997, David Bowie returned to Philadelphia for a sold-out two-night stand at the Electric Factory in support of his album Earthling. While he was in town, he set up shop at Sigma Sound – where he famously recorded the Young Americans album – and tracked an acoustic World Cafe Session with guitarist Reeves Gabrels.

This interview is unfortunately not able to be archived online, but it will be rebroadcast tonight at 10 on WXPN’s Conversations With The World Cafe. In the interview, you’ll hear performances of “Dead Man Walking,” “Always Crashing in The Same Car,” “Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)” and more, as well as a very energetic and funny Bowie fueled (as host David Dye observed) by a lot of strong espresso.

Tune in at 10 p.m. on 88.5 FM in Philly or via the streaming player at worldwide, and in the meantime, watch night one of Bowie’s Electric Factory double header in its entirety, shot by local concert videographer Makeit Aneight. Setlist below; it features two Velvet Underground covers, one Laurie Anderson cover, a song from Tin Machine and a mix of then-new cuts, classics and deep cuts.
