Interplanetary Masterbrain George P-Funk Clinton brings the Funk Mothership to Shreveport's Red River Revel on Sat, Oct 6

George Clinton, The King of Interplanetary Funkmanship and Atomic Dog Number One, was the monstermaster of the bands Parliament and Funkadelic during the 1970s and early 1980s, says Wikiepdia.org. In addition to bass and drums, his sense of the absurd is what it's all about.

The Red River Revel, in a moment of revolutionary irreverence, has booked the living legend. The Mothership is scheduled to land Oct 6, on the ElDorado RiverView Stage, 7:30 p.m.

Alongside James Brown, George Clinton is considered to be one of the most sampled musicians ever. He has appeared in movies, produced the RHCP's Freaky Styley album, and, in an ultimate accolade, appeared as the voice of The Funktipus, the DJ of the Funk radio station Bounce FM in the 2004 video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, in which his song Loopzilla also appeared.

Has the Funkenstein slacked lately? Don't think so. A 2005 album was entitled How Late Do U Have 2BB4UR Absent?

Not that you'd care about anything else on the Revel schedule after learning of the funkence of Mister Maggot Brain himself, but here's the schedule.
