George Clinton

George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic 

When: Fri., Sept. 2, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $30-45

If James Brown is the godfather, then George Clinton is his outlandish underboss, guiding funk into headier, space-faring environs without sacrificing any booty bounce. As leader of Funkadelic and Parliament, Clinton absorbed not only the Godfather's lessons but also the influence of '60s psychedelia. The resulting colorful, freewheeling funk was made even more distinctive by keyboardist Bernie Worrell's many squiggly analog synth samples. The last quarter-century of recorded output from Clinton and his cohorts (now dubbed the P-Funk All Stars) has been spotty, though still adventurous and stylistically promiscuous. But there's no doubt about their live show, which effortlessly transforms the room into a glorious, sweaty, grooving mess. —Chris Parker
