WHAT?
The first of two musical legends on our list this week (the other being Herbie Hancock), George Clinton aka Dr Funkenstein hardly needs an introduction. As the leader of Parliament in the 70s, Funkadelic in the 80s, and subsequently solo, few artists have been more influential than this pioneer of soul, funk and psychedelia. Performing with a full band, and with more than 50 years of stage experience up his sleeve, this should be a concert to remember.

WHERE?
Rockefeller, Torgata 16
HOW MUCH?
395NOK + admin fee

WHAT?
It’s 70 years ago this month that the USA dropped the first ever atom bomb in a theatre of war killing over 100,000 people in Hiroshima alone. To draw attention to the campaign to ban atom bombs a collection of Norwegian human rights/anti-atomic bomb organisations have come together to arrange an evening of concerts and speeches.
