Peter Hook and The Light are coming to the Howard Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 23, to play a lot of great songs by Hooky’s former bands New Order and Joy Division. So we at Parklife DC are dedicating our monthly party Careless Memories to Hooky, New Order, Joy Division, and Factory Records and calling it Factory Records 202. (Read more about the upcoming live show by Peter Hook.)
Celebrate with Careless Memories as we give away *five* pairs of tickets to see Peter Hook and The Light live at the Howard Theatre. You can win these tickets by showing up between 8pm and midnight to the next Careless Memories on Thursday, Nov. 10, at Dodge City (917 U St. NW, DC).
I’ll give away a pair of tickets every hour during Careless Memories — likely at 8:30pm, 9:30pm, 10:30pm, and 11:30pm.
Watch Peter Hook and The Light, accompanied by a 16-piece choir, perform “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division at Manchester Cathedral on Nov. 15, 2011:
Thankfully for your Careless Memories host, the following day (Nov. 11) is a Veterans Day federal holiday. So perhaps you too can stay a little later and request your favorite New Order or Joy Division song?
At our Factory Records 202 evening, we’ll play tunes mostly by New Order and Joy Division, but we will also give some love to a few of their Factory Records labelmates — like Section 25, The Wake, The Durutti Column, A Certain Ratio, and others — as well as their fellow Manchester UK bands that set the scene — such as The Buzzcocks, The Chameleons, The Fall, and yes even The Smiths.
RSVP for Careless Memories on Facebook, or simply come out that night! Admission is free. Don’t miss your chance to win a pair of tix to see Peter Hook and The Light at the Howard Theatre on Nov. 23!
