Anderson .Paak does not sit still. Whenever he wasn’t bounding across the stage, waving his arms over his head, and dancing with the mic he was perched behind the drum kit, smacking impressive drum fills with a big grin across his face. With a sprawling setlist featuring all of his discography—including his Yes Lawd! release under NxWorries with Knxwldge and his Kaytranada collaboration, “GLOWED UP” —.Paak covered moods and styles of all kinds. And yet, even this comprehensive take on .Paak’s musical career managed to stay humble—opener Tayla Parx joined onstage to add vocal color to “Tints,” the spotlight was set onto his backing band, The Free Nationals, played a track they recently released (sans .Paak) and closing song “Dang!” was a tribute to .Paak’s recently deceased friend and collaborator, Mac Miller.
