David J, DJs Scary Lady Sarah & William Faith Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Fri., Feb. 4, 10 p.m. 2011

Though he looks much the same as he did in the early 80s, former Bauhaus/Jazz Butcher/Love and Rockets bassist David J has never sat still for long. He's not just a prolific recording artist, with a discography that includes such fascinating oddities as a macabre 1981 recording with poet Rene Halkett of the original Bauhaus (the school, not the band) and an album of Crowleyite ritual music with comics writer Alan Moore—he's also a visual artist and playwright. Between his nonmusical creative outlets and the successful Bauhaus reunion of the mid-aughts, David J hasn't gifted us with hardly any of his own wry, sardonic, sinister, and sexy solo work in nearly eight years. That's finally changing, though—he's got a brand-new, partially fan-funded album, Not Long for This World, where he meditates on mortality (long one of his favorite topics), and he's already warmed up his fans with a Web-only single, "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death," and a seven-inch, "Tidal Wave of Blood" b/w "Blood Sucker Blues." DJs Scary Lady Sarah and William Faith (aka the Pirate Twins) spin. On Saturday, February 5, David J signs copies of Not Long for This World at Late Bar, 3534 W. Belmont; the event begins at 9 PM, and it's free, though there's allegedly a one-drink minimum
