Seminal musician David J, one quarter of the force known as Bauhaus and one third of the psychedelic rock jam known as Love and Rockets, further celebrates his autobiography “Who Killed Mister Moonlight? Bauhaus, Black Magick, and Benediction,” with a sturdy reading and show at New York’s Joe’s Pub before embarking on a month-long May tour, visiting London, Prague, and Berlin before returning to the States for shows in Philadelphia, Grand Rapids, Detroit, San Francisco, and Denver.

With the first edition now sold out, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? enters its second printing as David J. Haskins reads salubrious passages from the book while missing in songs both known and new. New York’s visit included the uber-classic Bela Lugosi’s Dead, accompanied by piano and violin, with renditions of LCD Soundsystem’s New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down and a rocking highlight of Iggy Pop’s Dum Dum Boys.

Haskins has been performing exclusive “Living Room Shows” here and there, highly intimate events with audiences as small as 25, sitting floor or cushions, and truly being right in the moment along with the progenitive rocker. Check his calendar to see when you might be fortunate enough to attend one of these limited-ticket events. For fans of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, and David J, “Who Killed Mister Moonlight?” is the inside story of one of the greatest bands of all time, and the generative works that followed.
