Review: Michal Menert, with Run the Jewels, at the Fillmore Auditorium, 11/16/13

MICHAL MENERT at FILLMORE AUDITORIUM | 11/16/13 Taking the stage waving a Colorado state flag bearing his own name, Michal Menert humbly thanked the crowd for coming out and supporting him and then opened up the throttle of samples. With a new custom light stage, AC Lao on the drums, and various artists joining him on stage for specific tracks, Menert's final show on his Space Jazz tour pulled out all the stops for the hometown throw down. Despite the electricity of excitement in the air, the show remained relatively tame until the end when some other Colorado music personalities joined him on stage to close out the night.
