420 Funk Mob 

Party People

Party People
We’d heard rumors that this Parliament-Funkadelic side project was playing in town this New Year’s, but we'd been checking Pollstar and their MySpace just listed the venue as TBA. We—in our infinite idiocy—were under the impression that TBA was a band, and a popular one at that. We saw TBA on every club calendar all over town. We're gonna assume that the Funk Mob's, uh, “mothership connection” was just as potent as ours. The lineup for this loose association of P-Funkers, built around singer/producer Michael “Clip” Payne, is in a constant state of flux, but we'd put good money on an appearance by Funkadelic founder and Music City local Billy “Bass” Nelson, a.k.a. the man that invented the funk that makes your rump jump. It's gonna be a great opportunity to get “Gloryhallastoopid,” if you know what we mean.
