WTF, since when does a button pusher’s name come before Bob Wier’s!? Or Chris Robinson for that matter, too.

i went to a Pretty Lights show one time at the Murat Egyptian Room. I’m gonna shoot you straight… the lights are cool, the crowd is young and weird, the music has very few solid moments imo. 128bpm for 2 hours straight gets OLD. Not knocking it, just saying this guy can go without. Don’t really understand it.
