As a founding member of seminal goth-rock outfit Bauhaus, David John Haskins helped usher in an era of doomy rhythms and dissonant melodies that would influence countless musicians for decades to come. The bassist, better known as David J, also co-founded alt-rock trio Love and Rockets and wrote compellingly about a life in underground music in Who Killed Mister Moonlight?: Bauhaus, Black Magick and Benediction, his 2014 memoir. J is in Athens for two back-to-back events: On Monday, June 13, he’ll appear at Avid Bookshop for a reading and meet-and-greet, and the following evening he’ll perform at ATHICA as part of his current living-room tour. Tickets for the latter are available at davidjofficial.bandcamp.com.
