Pretty Lights Makes Appearance to Celebrate Beloved Denver Venue

||, |,

While Pretty Lights may be deep in the lab during his unannounced, ongoing hiatus, he still makes time to appreciate one of Colorado’s most cherished venues. Celebrating its 20th-anniversary last month, Cervantes shared a promotional video that featured many of the artists who have performed there in the past. Among them are Clozee, Maddy O’Neal, Andy Frasco, and Pretty Lights, real name Derek Smith.

Each artist’s appearance is brief in the video, as they share their reactions to Cervantes reaching their 20-year milestone. “Wow, it really has been that long,” Smith says into the camera.

Back in 2017, during a guest appearance at the venue, Smith called the venue “ground zero.” On SoundCloud, there exists one of his live sets at Cervantes from 2008. To check out other artists who sound like Pretty Lights, we made a comprehensive list.
