Funk legend George Clinton is set to take part in an event linked to the British Library’s current science fiction exhibition, Out Of This World, later this month.

Clinton will be in conversation with one time Labelle member Nona Hendryx discussing the “afrofuturistic imagination” and “lavish science fiction inspired stage shows, costumes and concept albums” their respective bands created in the 1970s. The conversation will take place at the British Library in London on 18 Jun, more at this URL.

As previously reported, Clinton was recently admitted to hospital for treatment for a staph infection in one of his legs, but according to his Twitter feed he left the medical facility last weekend and is now ready to “board the Mothership for a tour”.
