Our Pick: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, The Greyboy Allstars @ Club Nokia
Tonight LA is making a slow, but steady recovery. LA-based ska rockers the Slackers will be headlining the El Rey Theatre. LAist favorites the Monolators (LAist Review, #2) and Seasons are slated to perform at the American Legion Hall in Highland Park. And, lastly, Shiloe (LAist Review) will be rocking for free at Redwood Bar. But we suggest heading over to Club Nokia in Downtown to catch the principal architect of P-Funk, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.
