After more than 20 years of soundtracking all-night dance parties, New Order finally come to Williamsburg, playing the neighborhood’s renovated waterfront for an evening show with local (DFA-signed) synth-pop duo Holy Ghost!. Formed by the members of post-Ian Curtis Joy Division, the band released some of the seminal albums of the ’80s and have recently reunited with all but one original member. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes: While their live shows once tended to be short and sweet, word is that they’re now playing full sets.
