boyhollow on his five favorite Lipgloss guest DJs
Denver3.com Peter Hook at Lipgloss January 2006.
1. Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order)
Peter was easily my first choice. Joy Division is my favorite band of all time, so getting to meet a member of the band was incredibly thrilling for me. Even more exciting was that at midnight on the date that he played, I celebrated my birthday. Peter was a solid guy. He was very friendly, and one of the most professional and skilled of the rock legends we've brought into Lipgloss. I had the pleasure of hanging out with him for a short bit after his most recent performance in Denver, and we've exchanged a few emails since. It might be cheesy for me to think that's awesome, but I can't help it. It's just amazing to realize that I know a member of Joy Division. Peter signed a bunch of my Joy Division/ New Order paraphernalia -- much of it rare -- when he DJ'd at Lipgloss, and those things are among my greatest personal treasures.
Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem will guest DJ at Lipgloss this Friday, May 25 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $7 presale and $8 at the door. Get presale tickets at Denver3.com.
