George Clinton of Parliment-Funkadelic

Forerunner of psychedelic funk George Clinton has had an extensive and eclectic career on the fringes of cosmic music. Since the 1960s Clinton’s name has been synonymous with funk, and his vast array of bizarre songs based in science fiction and absurdity have cemented him as an innovator and an influencer for countless musicians. With a career spanning over 50 years, Clinton and his projects Parliament and Funkadelic have released dozens of studio albums and even more live albums and compilations. Currently touring in promotion of Parliament’s new record, Medicaid Fraud Dog, the 76-year-old rocker is just as full of funk and life as he was in the ‘60s. $36-$50. 8 p.m. Sun., Feb. 25. Buckhead Theatre. 3110 Roswell Rd NW. 404-843-2825. www.thebuckheadtheateratl.com.
