Just heard that Pretty Lights, the burgeoning superstar otherwise known as Derek Vincent Smith, is slated to perform this Sunday, August 23, at the newly minted City Hall. Without question, this will be this weekend's hottest ticket. Oh and speaking of tickets, they're on sale right now for a measly twelve bucks -- and that's including the service charge! Anyone care to make a wager how quickly this one's going to sell out? Probably by the time I finish writing this. Be there or be talked about, as the cool kids say. To get a taste of what's in store, check out some clips of Pretty Lights performing after the jump.
