Eight Gigs: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic

Fri., Apr. 15, Veterans Memorial Auditorium, 8 p.m., $45-$52

If being in a crowd that’s high on life in addition to numerous other not-so-legal substances is not your thing, it would be wise to steer clear of George Clinton’s funk night in the foothills. Those looking to hear music from both Parliament and Funkadelic eras will be delighted to know the 74-year-old bandleader hasn’t lost a step, and his live members are certainly no slouches. Odds are, every child of the ’70s and ’80s has heard “Flash Light” or “Aqua Boogie,” as both songs both got much airplay. 255 South Auburn Street in Grass Valley, www.georgeclinton.com.
