POPTONE

FEATURING DANIEL ASH / KEVIN HASKINS / DIVA

$31 Advance, $36 Doors, $100 Tables for Two // Doors: 7PM / Show: 8PM // 18+

Singer-guitarist Daniel Ash and drummer Kevin Haskins — who spent large swaths of the ’80s and ’90s performing together in the seminal acts Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets — are reuniting to form a new band called Poptone with Haskins’ daughter Diva that will perform the music of those three classic acts on tour in the U.S. this summer. Diva Dompe, Haskins’ daughter, is a musician in her own right who previously played in BlackBlack.

Haskins and Ash, who have been DJing together of late, last played together in Bauhaus, with Haskins’ brother David J and frontman Peter Murphy, during a 2006 reunion and in Love and Rockets, again with David J, in a 2008 reunion. The comparatively short-lived Tones on Tail, which featured Ash, Haskins and bassist Glenn Campling, only ever performed live in 1984.
