Photos: Anderson .Paak LIVE at The Fillmore in Denver

Bubblin’ from his recent Grammy win, Anderson .Paak tore the roof off a sold out Fillmore in Denver on Wednesday night. From silk screens to smoke blasts, the visual energy of Cheeky Andy’s Beach Club Tour matched the famously infectious Paak and the Free Nationals. The set list revolved around Oxnard, with a generous heap of hits from Venice and Malibu peppered in throughout. Paak was all over the place in the best way; whether he was crowd surfing, ripping the drum set to shreds, or dancing from one end of the stage to the other, he never missed a note or a step. The crowd adoringly matched his every word, “yes lawd!”s screamed regularly in exuberance. It felt like something of a victory lap for Paak, who after years of underground acclaim, is now indisputably a superstar.

Shouts out to opener Tayla Parx who should’ve gotten more love for her amazing set. Check out the photos below, captured by Blake Jackson.
