Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune Zach Cowie and Elijah Wood of DJ Wooden Wisdom perform at the FantasyCon kick-off party, held at The Complex in Salt Lake City, Wednesday July 2, 2014.

Yes, that was a hobbit DJ at the complex on Wednesday night.

Well, not a real hobbit. But Elijah Wood, who starred as Frodo Baggins in all three “Lord of the Rings” movies (and reprised that role with a cameo in the first “Hobbit” movie), displayed his DJ skills at a kick-off event for FantasyCon, which runs through Saturday at the Salt Palace.

Wood teamed with his friend DJ Wooden Wisdom (Zach Cowie) at the event.
