RECAP / PHOTOS: Pretty Lights @ Red Rocks 8/18

Pretty Lights was back at it this weekend in Colorado playing two sold out Red Rocks shows in a row. The Colorado producer came out on the second night with all of his labelmates at Pretty Lights Music (sans Paper Diamond). I was able to snag a ticket last minute to take photos of this evening of truly epic proportions. I’d seen all of the openers at least once before so I had an idea of what to expect from them. And yet, I was surprisingly most impressed with Michal Menert’s set. I really enjoyed his latest album, and had seen him since it was released, but still, his sets on Saturday night blew me away. By the time Pretty Lights came on all of the openers had played twice and the crowd was antsy. The sun had set and the stage was prepped for his setup (far more extravagant than the openers’). He played a handful of kick ass new songs, and also played a tracks from all of his albums and EPs, which the crowd really appreciated.

The entire night was very sentimental for everyone as Red Rocks can be considered Pretty Lights’ home venue. And, he got to bring all of his friends in to open for him. Even his family, including his grandmother made it to the show. Security guards that normally aren’t in the best mood were bustin’ out dance moves I hadn’t even seen before. The show really meant a lot to everyone and the crowd could tell that it meant a lot to Pretty Lights as well. Check out the awesome photos from the night!
