Skirt Jam of the Week – Pretty Lights – I Know the Truth

27 Sep

Over the weekend I went to Popped Philadelphia, a two-day concert festival featuring a bunch of bands including Foster The People, Girl Talk, and Pretty Lights.  Foster the People, probably my favorite band of the moment, put on a great show playing pretty much all of their songs (they only have one album), showing great energy throughout.  Then Girl Talk came on and…wow.  For anyone who immediately dismisses him as “just some guy who plays songs”….go see a show in person, believe me.  Finally, after what I thought were an impossible two acts to follow, Pretty Lights came on.  I’d heard some of his songs before but always figured they’d be way better live, and I was right.  Unbelievable.  It’s tough to choose one, but since everyone is probably more familiar with his hits like Hot Like Sauce and Finally Moving, I thought I’d put up another good one, I Know the Truth, from Bonnaroo this year.  It’s a little hard to fully appreciate these songs just from a YouTube video, since when you’re in person you get the full effect of the light show and stadium audio (and the 25 beers you drank before). Either way, after this weekend I’ve decided I’m going to quit being a legitimate human being and just spend the next 3-4 years touring the country going to festivals like this, so it’s been nice knowing everyone.  DJStrongIsland will be posting in my absence.  See everyone in 2015.
