Texas Tech Bringing the Funk for Raider Alley on November 20
Texas Tech Athletics' season of bringing throwback artists to perform at Raider Alley for football games comes to a conclusion next weekend for the Oklahoma State Cowboys game.
George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic will be performing at Raider Alley in the Engineering Key on November 20th, 2021.
Someone on the Texas Tech staff must be a fan of the 1990s movie PCU. If you haven't seen PCU, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic have an extended cameo performing a few songs during a campus party. They're one of the bright spots of the movie.
In 2019, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. A substantial portion of Parliament Funkadelic was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 by the late Prince.
Their most popular songs were released in the 1970s and 80s. They include: "Atomic Dog" in 1982, "Give Up the Funk" in 1976, "Flashlight" in 1978, and "Aqua Boogie" in 1978.
Here's some P-Funk to get you pumped up for next weekend:
Here's the version of "Stomp" performed for the PCU soundtrack:
And, of course, "Bring the Funk":
