If you missed last year's Pretty Lights show at the Big Sky amphitheater, never fear. Derek Vincent Smith, the man behind the glitchy hip-hop and vintage funk and soul experience, will be back Nov. 20, this time at the Adams Center. Tickets are $32.50 and go on sale Sat., July 13 at 10 AM at griztix. The show will be on the heels of the album release for A Color Map of the Sun, plus the release of live studio sessions of the same album. (Really? I guess that's something people do these days.)
It kind of makes sense though. In the past, Smith has used plenty of samples to make his own music. For this album he recorded everything analog, using original musicians and recording them and himself direct to tape. Makes for an interesting back story.
