Manchester DJ Dave Haslam Talk


This is a short notice event announcement, but we’d like to invite everyone to stop by the CUDC for an exciting presentation on Saturday, March 27th starting at 5:30pm. A friend of ours, the multi-talented Dave Haslam, will be visiting from Manchester, UK next weekend for a DJ-ing gig at B-Side Liquor Lounge on Sunday and we want to take the opportunity to spotlight some of his other interests with a talk the night before.

Dave will deliver a talk on the post-punk band Joy Division‘s emergence in the context of post-industrial Manchester in the late 70′s, the band’s re-emergence as New Order after singer Ian Curtis’ tragic death and their music’s enduring influence to this day.

If you’re a fan of Joy Divison, New Order or the bands they inspired (U2, the Killers, Arcade Fire, etc.), then this is definitely an event you won’t want to miss. But the story of creativity in the midst of affliction is something in which we can all find inspiration.

    We’re putting together a mix of Joy Divison/New Order tracks for the event. Any suggestions?

    Looking forward to seeing you Saturday! Spread the word!
