Those who saw Flying Lotus open for Solange at the Greek Theater last year got an earful—and eyeful—with a pulsing lightshow, throbbing beats, and 3D visuals.

Now, the L.A.-based artist returns to the Greek Theater as a headliner, bringing his hazy, experimental music style and trippy visuals along with him. Flying Lotus brings inventive jazz elements into his electronic sound, possibly inspired by the work of his great-aunt, Alice Coltrane.

Sweden's Grammy-nominated electro-poppers Little Dragon open, along with crossover jazz quartet BADBADNOTGOOD.

Flying Lotus, Little Dragon, and BADBADNOTGOOD perform Saturday, June 16, at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. Details here.
