A rave is coming to the faraway lands of Hobbiton and Frodo is about to be essentially the most well-known DJ in all of Center-earth.
A pair of fantasy-themed digital occasions will see The Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wooden and Zach Cowie carry out headlining units at Seattle’s Q Nightclub on February 1st and Portland’s 45 East on February third. Collectively, the 2 actors carry out underneath their collaborative alias, Wooded Knowledge, enjoying all 45 RPM information.
In a well-curated accompaniment for the themed occasions, Nora Van Elken will play supporting units for each reveals. Earlier this 12 months, the Dutch DJ and producer stunned followers with an epic triptych of progressive home tracks that reworked iconic music from J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic LOTR collection, during which Wooden starred as Frodo Baggins.
Wooden is not any stranger to getting behind the decks, who began DJing at a bar in New Zealand in 2000. It will be practically 10 years later till he collaborated with Cowie at a celebration, the place the 2 “bonded over obscure music… over the same sense of journey in music consumption,” per The New York Instances. The 2 then shaped Picket Knowledge, spinning all-vinyl, psychedelic ’70s funk and storage primarily for his or her pals.
Wooded Knowledge have been considerably on the back-burner since then, though the 2 carried out alongside DJ Fitz at Primavera Sound over the summer season. Now, LOTR followers and vinyl lovers will get a style of the duo to kick off the frosty winter season correct.
Costumes are extremely inspired for the occasions. Each nights are set to be magical sonic journeys trekking throughout the magical lands of sweltering home music.
If Gandalf as soon as once more will get delayed on his epic journey house, we’ll know what went down.
