Whether you grew up with Parliament’s music, or your favorite artist(s) served as a gateway through samples or covers, your life has undoubtedly been touched by the greatness of George Clinton. Those first parts of “Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)” set you off and before you know it, you’re singing along top volume. Gotta have the funk.
Clinton revolutionized the funk. He changed the face of music itself with the Parliament-Funkadelic collective, and his influential sound and style continue to inspire artists of all genres. This is the innovator. And tonight, Saturday July 23, you have the opportunity to witness the legend in person. George Clinton brings his One Nation Under A Grove Tour to the Haute Spot in Cedar Park, 1501 E. New Hope Dr. (78613), featuring The Motet with Shira Ellis, Josh Schwartz, and Chris Brouwers; New Orleans outfit The Soul Rebels; Brooklyn/New Orleans band Pimps of Joytime; and NYC funk fusion group Blue Eye Extinction. Doors open at 6 p.m.
And don’t think you’ll be sitting down the whole time. Get up and dance, fool.
