Last night (February 4), Anderson .Paak finally made his way to New York City's SOBs. The show was originally set for January 25th, but was rescheduled due to blizzard conditions. After a week of patiently waiting, we were able to watch him perform some of our favorite tracks off his recently released album, Malibu. To no surprise, it was a sold out show. Fans filled the venue and the air was brimming with energy and excitement. Conversations about his TV debut performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert also seemed to be a main topic of discussion for the evening, which everyone was RAVING about. Let's just say we were all very thrilled about the event that was about take place.

Here are some of the best moments from the evening's performance:

Anderson Paak

Anderson takes over the drum set: Anderson is one talented dude. Not only can he sing, but he's also a multi-instrumentalist. I was definitely looking forward to seeing him rock his skills on stage. Within the third song of his set, he had drum sticks ready in hand to play "The Season | Carry Me." There were several other times throughout the night when .Paak played the drums, and it was a great site to observe him working the entire stage in various ways for his audience.

He played David Bowie's "Let's Dance": Quite unexpectedly, the artist returned to the drums mid-show and played a snippet of David Bowie's famous hit "Let's Dance." There was a wave of cheer that rushed through the crowd as everyone recognized the tune. It only accounted for a very small segment of the entire show, but it added a very memorable moment to his performance.

Closing the evening with a very hype performance: It was that time of the evening when Anderson thanked all his fans and those in attendance for their support. Upon his final goodbyes, the crowd's cheers grew louder and louder with a level of energy I haven't witnessed in a while. We were lucky to get one last song from him as he returned for an encore. His song of choice was perfect to end off the night. It was his track titled "Drugs" from his first album. The crowd was hype, and he got everyone to rage out to the beat. It was a pretty amazing way to close out the night. Final takeaway: this guy knows how to put on a show and give his audience an experience they won't forget.
