  1. MATT MUNOZ: David J. as good as goth gets

    British goth rock pioneer David J. Haskins makes a rare visit to Bakersfield on Friday night, much to the delight of the children of the night.

    But don't expect a traveling cavalcade of caskets, crucifixes and hooded figures from the co-founder of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets. For this intimate outdoor show, Haskins, armed with only his guitar and a mixed bag of songs handpicked from his darkly illustrious career, will be performing a solo acoustic set as part of a series of residential appearances.

    "I love the intimacy and the fact that each venue is unique," said Haskins, 57, during a recent interview. "It is great to work directly with the music fans rather than often cynical promoters. I'm looking forward very much to visiting Bakersfield."
