At the Haight Street, San Francisco store DJ Nikki Finn will be spinning an all-vinyl tribute set to Madonna at 5pm.

It’s best known for the title track, especially after being covered by Nirvana on their Unplugged LP, but The Man Who Sold the World represents a turning point in Bowie’s career as his music turned heavier and lyrics darker, setting an important precedent for goth rock, among other influences the album would have.
