You know those bass chords. Peter Hook played that bass as though it was a guitar. The riffs are instantly recognizable if you’re a longtime Joy Division fan – or even a New Order fan.

The songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer is best known as bassist and co-founder of both, though these days you’ll find him on tour with his own band, The Light. Don’t miss them tonight at Emo’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr. The show includes performances of the albums Technique and Republic by New Order, in their entirety, with an opening set featuring the music of Joy Division.

Doors at 7 p.m. Very recommended.
