Concert review: George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic at Rams Head Live
Meant to post this earlier, but this week's been so wild and crazy, I haven't had the time to write about it.
As always, it was half concert and half circus. And as always, they brought the funk. A three-hour set of funk, no less.
Clinton and his posse played all their hits ("Flashlight," "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)," "Maggot Brain" and more). The crowd was incredibly diverse, too ...
I looked around and saw people from all walks of life. The club was pretty full, and my only complaint was the ticket price ($40+). But Clinton's got to pay for all of his crew, so I understand it.
Clinton's voice is shot from years of singing and ... whatnot ... but his backing singers are so good you barely notice it. I mean, Clinton doesn't really need to be there -- I'm sure this show could run on autopilot. But he is the ringleader. The funkadeer, if you will.
Great show, all around. Anybody else see 'em?
