George Clinton to Make LAMC's Garage an Atomic Doghouse

Published : Wednesday, February 13, 2019 | 8:18 AM

Singer, songwriter, bandleader, and record producer, the original Atomic Dog, George Clinton, will be at the Los Angeles College of Music’s (LAMC) “Let’s Talk Music” series in Pasadena Feb. 13

“Let’s Talk Music” is hosted by LACM every quarter for students, alumni and associates and the community surrounding the West Pasadena campus.

“The ‘Let’s Talk Music’ series has been going on for a few years,” said Laura Johnson, LACM publicist. “They are ‘master classes’ intended as a public service and are open and free to students of LACM and the public.”

On Wednesday, accomplished musician and composer Jae Deal of LACM’s songwriting faculty will interview George Clinton about his history in the music industry, his journey as an artist, and his aspirations to affect change with his music. The event will be at The Garage at LACM.

The program will be streamed live online.

Clinton and his Parliament-Funkadelic collective were recognized with a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award at Sunday’s 61st Annual Ceremony.

Clinton was an innovator in funk, but has produced in the hip-hop genre. “Wednesday’s interview is a chance for the public, and for students particularly, to hear someone accomplished talk about music that is relevant to them,” said Johnson.

Other musicians who have been featured in the “Let’s Talk Music” series include Glen Ballard, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, Ziggy Marley, Moby and Linda Perry.

It is a free community event for LACM students, Los Angeles and Pasadena residents, and fans. The talk starts at Feb. 7. The campus is at 300 South Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. RSVP is required. Email or call (626) 568-8850.
