Pretty Lights fall 2009 tour to be blindingly awesome

placeholder image

    Here’s a news flash for all you electro hip-hop kids out there: Pretty Lights is taking its raw, energetic, down-tempo music to nightclubs, bars, and theaters across the country.  That means you should get ready to flock like a moth to a flame come late August.

    Pretty Lights is Colorado producer Derek Vincent Smith and stage show drummer Cory Eberhard. Smith’s style relies predominantly on the concept of taking broken beats and seamlessly combining them with old soul-laden samples from the ’60s and beyond. These massive sonic creations are then best enjoyed by you and a couple hundred sweaty strangers in the most bass-heavy settings possible.

    To those who cannot wait to jam themselves in with the drunken and socially awkward in clubs across the country, you can download both Pretty Lights albums from the band’s official web site. That should brighten your day.
