Smart Bets: Pretty Lights

Last in Asheville for the inaugural Moogfest, Pretty Lights (aka composer/producer Derek Vincent Smith) returns with a new electro-hip-hop-soul show. Smith debuted cutting-edge material (new sounds, styles and techniques) at Bonnaroo early this summer, and in the months since, he's been refining and evolving the live performance. And there's a visual component (otherwise, what would be the point of being called Pretty Lights?). According to a press release, "The massive 3D on-stage LED city and out-of-this-world light show will leave longtime PL fans and first timers alike speechless and mesmerized." Pretty Lights plays the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 8 p.m. $28.
