Making music since the mid-1950s, George Clinton -- in town tonight at the Fillmore towing the Parliament-Funkaledic line -- is an enduring musical force that extends far beyond sound. Clinton is a movement in himself, a colorful cultural noisemaker who has, over the last five decades, taken funk from the white house to the depths of the cosmos and back.
Whether you're sixteen or sixty, a George Clinton & P-Funk show will move you, with textured bass-bouncing rhythms and harmonies that ride from dirty to gospel-like. Clinton conducts his orchestra with rainbow hair swings and hand gestures, but his scratchy, happy voice and toothy grin are what keep all eyes and ears on one of the most enduring figures in modern music history.
This show is sixteen and up and tickets are $35.25. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and show begins at 8:30 p.m.
