As the weather starts to heat up in Denver, the temperature inside the Fillmore Auditorium was already Summer-like this past Saturday night. The co-headlining tour of Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith made a stop to a packed house. The Kali and Jorja Tour kicked off with Kali Uchis going first. The Colombian-American sultry singer has made a name for herself the last few years with her work as a solo artist and frequent collaborations with the likes of Tyler the Creator, Gorillaz, Daniel Caesar and more. Last year she released her full length debut album Isolation to much acclaim. She played a few songs off Isolation as well as a couple note-worthy covers of Beautiful by Pharrell Williams and Creep by Radiohead. Kali was born to be an entertainer and she showcased that as she won over the crowd with her sultry dance moves as she owned every inch of the stage.

After a quick change over Jorja Smith came out to a raucous ovation as she got right into her opening song Teenage Fantasy. The English R&B singer who cites Amy Winehouse as one of her biggest influences ripped through her set with an almost hypnotic appeal that resonated with her jazz laced production and heartfelt lyrics. Smith dazzled with Lost and Found setting the whole venue into a trance like vibe as she showed her vulnerability in capturing the essence and feel of the emotional song. As an encore Smith brought out Uchis as they performed a few medleys including their song Tyrant. They playfully fed off each others energy to end the night in grand fashion as they both exited hand in hand to a loud applause.
