Thundercat released his third full-length studio album Drunk in February 2017. The album is a 23-track epic journey into the often hilarious, sometimes dark mind of the Grammy-winning singer/bassist and finds a few of his friends joining him along the way including Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Wiz Khalifa, Kamasi Washington, and Brainfeeder mastermind Flying Lotus. Drunk is the follow-up to his widely praised 2015 mini album The Beyond/Where The Giants Roam, and features fan favorite tracks “Bus In These Streets” and “Them Changes.”
As PYGMALION enters its 13th year, it remains one of the most culturally creative events in Champaign-Urbana and downstate Illinois. The ever-expanding offerings have grown to include music, technology, literature, food, and maker components. Krannert Center hosts the festival a full day including headlining musicians (Thundercat, Julien Baker, and more), a reading from acclaimed author George Saunders, a full tech DEMO, Share the Vision, Human Library, and more.
