George Clinton @ Patronaat

Whenever I tell people I’ve been to a George Clinton concert, people look a me with

November 2011, it was showtime again at Patronaat in Haarlem. It was my first time at Patronaat, a bunket like venue that can host about 800 guests I guess. together with my conct buddy Paul we had a good meal beforehand and were ready for a long show. George Clinton is notorious for having shows that last easily over 4 hours. In 2009 I went to a show in Paradiso Amsterdam that lasted 5 hours ( I had to leave after 3 hours).

Now, George (70 years old) came on stage already after a couple of minutes. And I had problems recognizing him, he didn’t have dreads anymore!
