There are few music personalities as colorful, wild, outrageous, and, well, funky as George Clinton. The man who gave the world Parliament and Funkandelic, and has made generations of listeners get up and shake it, is coming to New York City, and we want you to be there.
On Monday, Clinton will appear at the Museum Of The Moving Image to present a screening of the 1994 HBO special “Cosmic Slop.” It’s a controversial triptych directed by Reginald Hudlin, Warrington Hudlin, and Kevin Rodney Sullivan. Based on the short story “The Space Traders” by Derrick Bell, it imagines a future where extraterrestrials promise the United States untold riches…if they hand over all the black people in the country. The screening will be followed by a talk with Clinton, who just released the memoir “Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You?,” along with a book signing.
To win, follow us on Twitter and tweet: “I want to win George Clinton tix from @ThePlaylist. #WinThePlaylistContest.” Your final step: just email us your tweet, your full name and address, and tell us about the first time you heard the music of George Clinton. Good luck!
