It is almost criminal that Anderson .Paak is not the most popular musician alive. The multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter, and performer is just quite the rarity in the entertainment industry nowadays. A full-fledged force of musical nature, Anderson .Paak brought his Andy’s Beach Club World Tour to Atlanta’s Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre onto a sold-out house of crazed .Paak admirers.

In the company of his mates, The Free Nationals, and in support of his latest LP, Oxnard, the newly minted Grammy-winning virtuoso is ready to kick some ass and take some names — on stage, metaphorically speaking. The buildup to Anderson .Paak’s pageantry could be felt far and wide; chants of “Anderson” and “Yes Lawd” could be heard throughout. The mood was lit, the crowd anxious. Finally, at the strike of nine, Mr. .Paak’s silhouette appears through a thinly veiled curtain that hung in coverage of the stage. Mounted on his drum kit, .Paak makes his first impression on his Atlanta faithful. Oh yes, everyone was in for a sweet night. Oh yes, everyone was in for a spectacular party.

I told you I’d be back. You just didn’t know I’d bring a Grammy with me” — exclaims .Paak to the cheering masses. On the stage, .Paak is a madman brimming of unlimited talent. One moment he will be spitting bars, the next banging away on his hi-hats and tom-toms, followed by some slick dance routines and some soulful crooning. Though The Free Nationals are a first-rate and gifted crew, man, Anderson .Paak is just a freak. He is basically a one man melodious wrecking crew.
