According to Billboard, "David Bowie will curate the inaugural High Line Festival, to be held in May 2007 in neighborhoods underneath the High Line, a public park being created atop a long-abandoned elevated railway line on the west side of Manhattan." He's going to play an outdoor concert, and looks forward to giving some emerging artists some exposure next to "very well-known names." As you may remember, he is taking a year off from touring and recording, so I guess the outdoor concert will be the end of that. So what does he do with his time off? "One day," he says, "I watched three Woody Allen movies in a row." I love the image of David Bowie watching Woody Allen movies in his jammies, eating a pint of Ben and Jerry's.
