April 27, 2019 Django Haskins shares his original Indie music. A songwriter based in North Carolina, Django Haskins has fronted the pop-noir band, The Old Ceremony and also forms one half of the psych-folk duo Au Pair with the Jayhawks’ Gary Louris. This evening’s song cycle will be full of meditations on death, love, fear, wanderlust, and exploration of interior worlds. www.djangohaskins.com
