George Clinton’s 70th Birthday Funkabration
George Clinton turns 70 on July 22. Five days later, the Parliament-Funkadelic leader will celebrate his birthday with an outdoor performance at New York’s new Beekman Beer Garden on July 27. Dubbed George Clinton’s 70th Birthday Funkabration, the show will take place outdoors on the Beekman Beer Garden’s 200-ton sandy beach, with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and East River as Clinton’s backdrop. In the case of rain, the show will move under the protection of the Beekman Beer Garden’s 10,000 square-foot beer garden tent. Beekman Beer Garden plans to hold other shows throughout the summer months.
