Staff Pick: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Behind the neon extensions and the band members in sequined diapers stands one of the greatest minds in the history of American music - an innovator who took funk light-years past its logical conclusions before most people knew what was happening. George Clinton's ideas were cosmic long before the Mothership took off, and his creative streak with Parliament and Funkadelic between 1970 and 1974 has been rivaled by only a very select few. That he's still around playing this genius stuff live is just a bonus.

Tickets cost $32 at the door. Don't look back and say you once had the chance to see him but didn't.
