The legendary Parliament Funkadelic's genius was always the ability to bring together a disparate group of freaks—white, black, gay, straight, strung-out and religious folks—and create an alternate musical universe unlike anything seen before or since. Group mainstay Bootsy Collins, the bass-playing modern star child, carries that mantle into 2014. Are you sick of all those Madison Avenue/Washington, D.C./Hollywood fools? Laugh as the fur flies when we give all those creatures our good foot Thursday at the Georgia Theatre. Body Slam!
