Astoria is gonna get some funk.
George Clinton, known as one of the trendsetters of funk music and the brain behind the 1970s bands Parliament and Funkadelic (P-Funk All Stars), is scheduled to make an appearance at the Museum of the Moving Image on Oct. 27.
Clinton will be present for the screening of the three-part 1994 TV special “Cosmic Slop,” which he hosted, and afterward be part of a discussion, moderated by Grammy winning artist James Mtume.
Following the discussion, there will be a book signing for Clinton’s new memoir called “Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You? : A Memoir.”
This event is part of the museum’s “Changing the Picture” series which “celebrates and explores the work of film and television artists of color who are bringing diverse voices to the screen,” according to a description on the museum’s website.
“An Evening with George Clinton and Cosmic Slop” begins at 7 p.m at the Museum of the Moving Image, located at 36-01 35th Ave. Tickets are $20.
