On Wednesday night, that’s exactly what the city’s electronic music fans got. SuperVision and the Boulder-based GRiZ joined in soon after, pushing off into a night the room won’t soon forget. Check out videos from Pretty Lights and GRiZ’s performances below (via Instagram). Pretty Lights performing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Aug. Between highly hyped (and sold out) shows by Thundercat at the Bluebird Theater, Reverend Horton Heat at the Larimer Lounge and Noname at Lost Lake Lounge, it was already a big night for Denver’s concert faithful.

If you’ve seen Leon Bridges waltz on stage at Goosetown’s open mic night or Jack White bust out a gas station set on West Colfax, you’ll know that on any given Denver night, your favorite artist could come out of the rafters to play a surprise set. According to one show-goer, Pretty Lights took the stage around 11 p.m., playing a modular synthesizer and at one point, joining up with rapper Jubee, one of the night’s openers. But over in Five Points, Cervantes’ Other Side had two of the night’s biggest artists up its sleeve: Pretty Lights and GRiZ, two massive electro-soul artists, who casually dropped in on SuperVision’s headlining set at the 450-person venue. 17, 2013.
