Earlier this year David J (David J Haskins) launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his new album An Eclipse of Ships. One of the campaign rewards was a private David J house party gig followed by a meet and greet--a reward which was snapped up by fan Peter Jones in Springfield, Utah who paid four thousand dollars for the exclusive event. On May 23rd, Haskins and his band set up shop for Jones and his friends, and performed an hourlong set. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that David J enjoyed doing the gig and would like to do more in the future:

"It is so refreshing to play in an intimate setting for the true music fans, cutting out the often-seedy middleman. In fact, I want to play a lot more of these gigs in the future. It really feels like the right way to go."

David J will be back on the road in September to perform intimate house party gigs in 11 different cities. Fans interested in hosting a house party on one of the stops on the tour can host a ticketed show or pay a flat fee and invite guests.  Info on how to get involved is posted here

Watch video of David J performing an acoustic version of "No New Tale To Tell" from the Springfield, Utah gig below.



An Eclipse of Ships was released on May 1st and is available through iTunes, Amazon, or Bandcamp. Stream a few tracks from the record (including his song about a vasectomy!) below:
