POINTE BREAK: Kicking off tonight with works by Thomas/Ortiz Dance, the Dash Ensemble and more, the three-day Dance Gotham Festival returns for its fourth year of serving up a dazzling array of new ideas and creativity. Three nights and 30 dance companies means everything runs fast and furious – just like we like it. Skirball center for the Performing Arts, ; also on Saturday and Sunday (program varies nightly).
TWOFER: Any connection between Elvis Presley and David Bowie is tenuous at best – though “The Ziggy Stardust Companion” tells us that one of Bowie’s formative musical experiences involved watching his cousin dance to “Hound Dog” -- but one point is iron-clad: They share a birthday, and tonight, that birthday is being celebrated in style at Greaser Glam! The Elvis and Bowie B-Day Bash. Bands will cover each icon’s oeuvre, DJs will fill in the gaps, and there’ll even be pin-up hairstyling for those needing a hand with their up-do. 200 Orchard, .
