Poptone made their live debut Thursday evening with a performance of Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets, and Bauhaus material. This was the first of two gigs with the trio Daniel Ash,  Kevin Haskins, and Haskin’s daughter Diva Dompe (formerly of Black Black) performing at Swing House Studios in Los Angeles.

The lion’s share of the setlist was Tones on Tail heavy—featuring nine songs from the Bauhaus side project, but also featuring five Love and Rockets tracks, and one Bauhaus song—along with a cover of Elvis Presley’s Heart Break Hotel, and Adam Ant’s Physical. See the full setlist below plus more live footage.
