The Thunder Rolls

An L.A. kid whose dad played with Diana Ross and the Temptations and whose brother, Ronald Bruner Jr., drummed with Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves, and Suicidal Tendencies, Thundercat is a 27-year-old, Flying Lotus–affiliated bassist who has grown big enough to play with artists like Snoop Dogg and Erykah Badu and listen to his own songs in Grand Theft Auto V. This spring, his grooves during Red Bull Music Academy's "Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets" were a highlight during an otherwise lackluster event; tonight, his headlining set at the Music Hall of Williamsburg gives him more than an hour to play tracks off his recent Apocalypse. At 8, Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street, Brooklyn,, $15–$18
