Tonight in Seattle:  

Recommended Show: Peter Hook & The Light at Neumos {9/25}

Peter Hook and the Light at Neumos Decibel Festival

My New Order fangirl heart is exploding all over the place because the 10th Annual Decibel Fest kicks off tomorrow night, and one of the showcases is Factory Pop, and that means PETER HOOK is playing!!! And not just playing, but playing the whole of Power, Corruption & Lies, along with New Order's debut album, Movement

I can't even. I just. I mean. THIS IS AMAZING. Anyway, incredibly, there are still tickets left. So you better get yours now!  

Also amazing, this video from Jimmy Fallon of Peter Hook playing "Love Will Tear Us Apart" with The Roots! The. Roots. 

Though I'm most excited about New Order nostaglia, check out the rest of the Decibel Fest lineup too, which includes the awesome Sub Pop 25 showcase at the Showbox 9/25, featuring Shabazz Palaces, The Helio Sequence, TheeSatisfaction, and Kingdom Crumbs. And also Moby! And Lorde (who I feel like everybody is talking about right now)! And a whole bunch of other great performers!

Hooky with a mohawk, I haven't seen that before. That's a cool video, interesting to see their take on such an iconic song.
Alright Amie, I heard Moby on KEXP yesterday talking about this show and how Joy Division is his favorite band, etc. He said he gets invited on stage to play with them sometimes. I can't remember if he said he sang some Joy Division with the band at this show or not....how was the show? Was there a Moby appearance? Was it all as awesome as I expect it was?
John! I'm sorry I didn't see this until now. YES YES YES AND YES! Moby joined Hooky on stage for the encore, and sang New Dawn Fades and Ceremony, then danced like crazy to the Temptation, which I had a great view of and I thought was awesome. :)
And and TRANSMISSION! Duh.
WOW. Ceremony is the best New Order song, I bet that was pretty fun. Does Hooky play Bass in this lineup or is he playing guitar and singing? I feel like I read somewhere that his son was playing bass in this new band, which would be a little weird since Hooky+bass is so integral to both band's sounds. I would have liked to see Moby try to do some Ian Curtis-esque spastic dancing, that would be fun to see.
He is playing BASS and singing, but I heard he hates singing and was trying to get Moby to sing more. :) And yes, Moby was doing a very good Ian Curtis impression, both in dance and tone of voice.
