Watch Thundercat Perform At A Roller Disco For Boiler Room

Thundercat Boiler Room Square

Thundercat Boiler Room Live

What does it say about Thundercat that upon finding out that his latest Boiler Room live performance was shot from a rotating stage in the middle of a neon roller disco, we’re left thinking “Well, that sounds about right.” One might wonder “Is this safe? Is he getting busy, playing bass as the room spins by?” Well, if #PizzaRat can make it in this world, then dammit so can Thundercat.

Backed by Dennis Hamm and Justin Brown, the bass virtuoso tears through what’s come to be a fairly familiar setlist as of late–one loaded with cuts from his excellent new The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam mini-album, along with old(er) favorites like “Tron Song” and “Heartbreaks and Setbacks,” plus bits of Kendrick Lamar‘s TPAB cut “Complexion,” which he played a crucial role in writing and recording. Tundercat is, as always, right on point with wild improvisational soloing and more bass auto-wah than you could ever hope to scoop up with a spatula. Watch the full live performance below, and check out their current live tour itinerary after the jump. The room is spinnin, and Thundercat is winning.
