New Order
Here's a rare treat: New Order, the seminal English postpunk outfit spawned from Joy Division, follows two blockbuster 2012 Roseland gigs with an outdoor bash in the ’Burg. Sadly, the group will be performing sans original bassist Peter Hook because of intra-band squabbles—but the opportunity to hear classics like "Ceremony" nearly makes us forget such unseemly quarreling. (You can also expect a sampling from Lost Sirens, a recent album of outtakes from the sessions that produced 2005's Waiting for the Sirens' Call.) Setting the stage is Brooklyn DJ duo Holy Ghost!, which makes infectious, hook-heavy electropop.

might have been helpful if the article actually told information on WHERE the concert was. I already know who New Order is.
