Pretty Lights played a pair of packed shows at Red Rocks over the weekend. It's been a short trip to huge crowds for the DJ/producer born Derek Vincent Smit, who was playing relatively small opening slots just five years ago. Now, he's got a worldwide fan base, his own label and a new address. Still, the semi-hometown shows will always be something special. Photographer Miles Chrisinger was there to capture the scene — check out a few highlights below and be sure to visit the full slideshow.
