The space oddity that was David Bowie left behind not just his groundbreaking music, but a legacy of embracing life. After you’ve paid tribute at his Lafayette Street home , get to one (or all) of these tribute events around the city.
The New York Theatre Workshop’s musical adaptation of “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” co-written by Bowie, was in demand well before his death. The show, which stars Michael C. Hall, must close on the 17th, but you still have a chance to get day-of tickets through the CheapTix lottery. Through Jan. 17, $25+, 79 E. Fourth St.

The Classic Album Sundays crew at Good Room are making a special mid-week exception for this extraordinary musician to play through the most important of his music from his 40-year career, plus guest speakers, DJs and the listening party to remember with “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.” Jan. 12, doors at 6 p.m., 98 Meserole Ave., Brooklyn, free with RSVP

As Jareth the Goblin King, Bowie was many a young girl’s first crush (guilty). Relive the movie you know by heart (with subtitles to help you through the tricky parts) at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers’ sing- and quote-along of the 1986 Jim Henson classic. Attendees will also receive goodie bags, including a bubble wand, balloons to pop on cue with the Fireys and Whoopie Cushions for, well, you know when. Proceeds benefit a charity Bowie supported, Keep a Child Alive. Jan. 15, 7:45 p.m., 2548 Central Park Ave., Yonkers

What was announced as a tribute concert at Carnegie Hall just before Bowie’s death has become a tribute show to “a legendary life in music and celebrate the man who began his career by taking cues from Smokey Robinson [and] ended it by taking cues from Kendrick Lamar.” The evening will be hosted by Michael Dorf and include performances by Cyndi Lauper, The Roots, The Mountain Goats and more, with proceeds benefiting several music-focused organizations in the city. March 31, 8 p.m.
