George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic

Neither recent health problems or a battle with lawyers could stop the funk. George Clinton (that's him in the blue coat) just turned 70 and he celebrated with a multi-hour Parliament Funkadelic show at Beekman Beer Garden at the South Street Seaport in NYC last night (7/28).

Earlier this summer George played a free lunchtime show at Metrotech in Brooklyn. Ginzburg was at that one:

"Covering just about all their hits, and even throwing in a ten foot or so alien life form on stage, George danced, pranced, did poetry, and sang in that gravelly voice of his that won't make Al Green lose any sleep. Sure, he took a few uncharacteristic rests in a chair in back of the stage, but great this was. And when the twenty or so musicians jammed, it was indeed a joyful noise."

Pictures from the Beekman show are in this post. More of them below...
