We try to make our way up to MoMA as often as possible, if only just to pound Bloody Marys at The Modern. But tonight there is extra incentive to visit as Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore introduces and discusses some of David Bowie's music videos, which were recently gifted to the museum by Bowie as part of the museum's Looking at Music series. It's not exactly clear what Thurston is going to talk about since most of the early Mick Rock-directed videos are just Bowie standing there looking awesome, but we're sure he'll have something interesting to say. For a teaser, above is one that is surely in the exhibit, "Life on Mars?" from 1973, and here's what we predict Thurston Moore will say about it: "His hair looks really great in this one." Buy tickets here, and if you have iTunes you can pick up some of Bowie's 1972 Peel Sessions in the UK Store today, as well.
