Happy Monday, folks. I’m excitedly catching up on news today after an amazing weekend here in SF, and one of the first things I’m checking on is how the Wanderlust Festival went down in Squaw Valley here in Northern Cali. I wouldn’t normally get too amped about that festival but I saw news before the weekend that made my radar perk up. Turns out that Pretty Lights was booked for the festival and made an announcement last week stating that he’d be bringing a new drummer along for the party. That new drummer is none other than Adam Deitch, a true ripper and a drummer of immense talent and natural ability. This news effectively bummed out everyone in my crew that had yet to purchase a ticket to the Pretty Lights late-night booked after Outside Lands, a sure-fire rage fest at the Independent.
In addition to that huge announcement, the band had a pretty stellar week otherwise. They announced a sell-out crowd will be joining them on August 7th at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, and they also released their second of three EP’s planned for this year.
