Thundercat at the Rickshaw Theatre

Wearing an all-black outfit, it looked like the murdered-out Thundercat was really just there to slay us all. With Justin Brown on the drums and Dennis Ham on the keys, the trio opened with “Tron Cat” off Thundercat’s 2013 LP Apocalypse. In between songs, Thundercat exchanged some banter, pointing out a Godzilla shirt he saw in the crowd. “That’s a really cool shirt, man, that’s all I had to say,” he said, giggling, as he started playing the opening chords to “Lotus and the Jondy,” a tune also off Apocalypse dedicated to his friends Flying Lotus and Austin Peralta, who died in 2013 of viral pneumonia.

The rhythms that Thundercat delivers are completely in sync with the movements of his body. Extreme focus and his facial expressions while concentrating made it charmingly reassuring for his fans to see that he was putting everything he had into his set. His drummer and keyboardist were also on the same wavelength, keeping up with the pace of the crowd and the vibe on stage without missing a beat.

This was Thundercat’s fourth sold-out show in a row on his world tour to promote his upcoming album Drunk, set to be released Friday, February 24. The album features talents such as Kamasi Washington, Kenny Loggins, Pharrell, Flying Lotus, and Kendrick Lamar.
