Two headline dates.

More Thundercat More Thundercat

To coincide with his appearance at Laneway Festival in 2016, US multi-instrumentalist Thundercat is set to play two exclusive sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne next February. 

The LA-born artist will play his first show at Max Watt's in Sydney on Wednesday 10 February, followed by a performance Melbourne's own Max Watt's the very next night. 

Announced as the support act for the Sydney show is singer-songwriter and poet Sampa The Great, while Silent Jay (Live) will open in Melbourne.

Having collaborated with such acts as Flying Lotus and most recently Wiz Khalifa, Thundercat combines his jazz roots with wildly experimental sensibilities to create an exotic and unique sound.
