Pretty Lights Works Grateful Dead Classics Into All Good Set


Disparate acts Furthur and Pretty Lights closed out Saturday night’s main stage action at this past weekend’s All Good Music Festival. Furthur performed first, while Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, held down the late night slot. Pretty Lights tipped his hat towards the post-Jerry act by working a pair of Grateful Dead classics into his set.

Fans were thrilled to hear elements of “Shakedown Street” and “Scarlet Begonias” smack dab in the middle of Smith’s set. The Colorado-based producer, who has become such a huge draw that Pretty Lights was listed second on the All Good lineup, was long a staple at jam festivals. Even as his star continues to rise, Smith hasn’t forgotten where he came from.
