Goth-rock purveyors Bauhaus reunited at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Sunday. Their first concert in 13 years, Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, and David J delivered a 15-song set consisting of covers, fan favorites, and rarities.
The band kicked things off with a cover of John Cale’s “Rosegarden Funeral of Sores” before proceeding to play a mix of fan favorites (“Bela Lugosi’s Dead”, “Dark Entries”, “She’s In Parties”) and rarities (“Spy in the Cab”, “The Man With the X-Ray Eyes”, and “The Three Shadows, Part II”). They wrapped up the night with a trio of covers: Iggy Pop’s “Sister Midnight”, T. Rex’s “Telegram Sam”, and David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust”.

Bauhaus have two more reunion show at the Palladium in the books — one tonight and another on December 1st. Murphy is then set to play a series of solo shows at NYC’s (Le) Poisson Rouge in January.
