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.
