We were so excited to get to meet Django Haskins and check out his band The Old Ceremony after hearing from Jody Stephens what a nice dude he is.
The two tall, cool and handsome musicians met and played together during The Fully Orchestrated Live Premiere of Big Star’s Third that was put on by Chris Stamey last December in Raleigh, NC and then again earlier this year in NYC.
Since rumors are beginning to swirl about the show happening in Memphis before the end of the year, we were obliged to check out some of the many bands that participated while we were in Raleigh for Hopscotch Music Festival – including Lost in the Trees, Megafaun, and The Love Language – but The Old Ceremony was easily our favorite – and not just because they let us drag them out of White Collar Crime on a scavenger hunt for the perfect place for us to ask them 5 ridiculous questions from The Kopecky Family, The Constellations, Colour Revolt, Brass Bed, and Jamie Randolph and the Darkhorse.
The Old Ćeremony is a Chapel Hill, North Carolina pop-noir musical group fronted by Django Haskins. Formed in 2004, the group has released four full-length albums, Our One Mistake, on sonaBLAST! Records; and The Old Ceremony, Walk On Thin Air, and Tender Age on the Durham, NC label, Alyosha Records. Through unique live performances, radio airplay, and positive critical reviews, the group has risen to regional prominence, touring extensively throughout the US and Canada.
