Elijah Wood Will DJ The FantasyCon Kick-Off Event
FantasyCon is one of United States's biggest fantasy conventions, hosted annually in Salt Lake City, Utah. The three day event features a plethora of film, tv, and cosplay characters, and this year around it will be hosting the largest gathering of Lord of the Rings and Hobbit characters to date. Elijah Wood, most known as LOTR's enduring protagonist, is set to attend this year's other-worldly gathering, however he won't be arriving as his ring-bearing counterpart Frodo - he's there to dj.
Wood, alongside his partner-dj Zach Cowie, will be supplying the music for the convention's kick-off event at The Complex tomorrow under the alias Wooden Wisdom. Now this isn't the first time that Wooden Wisdom has hit the stage, as they have also performed at the 2012 Bushmills Live festival as well as the pre-Emmy party at the London West Hollywood hotel. In a press release about the actor/dj performing at FantasyCon's opening event, FantasyCon founder Josh Patel said, "We all know Elijah Wood for his role as Frodo in 'The Lord of the Rings' films, but most people don’t know that he’s also a really talented DJ. Elijah has a great love for music, and we’re absolutely thrilled that he is making the time to share this passion with our FantasyCon fans."
Although Wood won't be staying at the convention for its entire duration, he is still scheduled for a Q&A session at the kick-off party. The show is open to the public, and tickets can be purchased here.
