THUNDERCAT headlines a special performance for our “Concerts On The Green” Series—an outdoor, socially-distanced pod concert series outside the California Center for the Arts. This show is open to all ages.

Thundercat has rescheduled his performances to Friday June 18th and Saturday June 19th.

Unreserved general admission lawn tickets are now available for $38/each.

A limited amount of reserved pods–reserved seating for groups 4-6x-in the closest areas to the stage are still available for both nights as well.

Thundercat is the alter ego of virtuosic bassist / singer Stephen Bruner, a mercurial talent and GRAMMY Award winner (2016 and 2021). His recent album “It Is What It Is” won the 2021 GRAMMY for Best Progressive R&B Album. Highly respected and much in-demand with his peers, Thundercat has previously worked with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, and his longtime writing / producing partner Flying Lotus.
