I went to see George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic this past Sunday. I give the experience 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was at the RexPlex in Elizabeth NJ, which is not a good venue to see a concert in. It's a *huge* indoor sports complex, and they set up concerts in a hockey rink and put up curtains so you can't see the soccer game going on right next to you. Mixing sound in a room that size has got to be a nightmare. The drums sounded perfect, and the drumming was great. The guitars sounded ok, and the vocals and keys were pretty good. The bassist (I don't know his name) did not play nearly as large of a role as I was expecting. You could hear him alright, and it's not like he was playing wrong notes or anything, it was all just very reserved. He played with his back to the audience facing the drummer about 50% of the time. This is sort of ok for pfunk because there are so many other people on stage that one with his back turned doesn't seem unusual, but to the bassists in the audience it's disappointing. He had a 6 string, but I swear he only used the lower 3 strings. He did get a bit more animated when he turned around and sang some backups. The best thing about the overall performance was their dynamic control. They definitely were able to create intensity through varying quiet and loud parts, which is *very* important when all of your songs are 20 minutes long. For the last song, the bassist went away and one of the singers played a Fender Jazz. His Ampegs weren't working so he had to plug into the regular bassists rig (might've been 2 MoBasses? I dunno, they were silver). The tone he ended up w/ was very very boomy. They started late, and the venue wanted them to stop on time, so the RexPlex guy was standing on the side of the stage giving George mean looks for the last 15 minutes, and they turned the halogen sports lights on while they were still playing! Talk about killing any mood they were able to create in that horrible room! I swear the venue guy pulled the plug the second they were done. It sounded to me like the final snare hit didn't come through the PA. I was able to score free tickets, but if I had paid $30 like most of the people ($36.50 if you used ticketmaster) I would've been pissed.
