    Musician George Clinton appears at his 67th birthday party at Zune on July 22, 2008 in Los Angeles, California.

    The Museum of Contemporary Art will get a little funky on February 4th with a performance by the legendary George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic.

    The concert is part of the MCA's artEdge 2012 benefit event.

    Concert-only tickets which include an open bar and dessert are available for $150 each. Or you can opt for the $1,000 package which includes a cocktail reception in a large tent that will be transformed into a planet of plastic and a performance by artist Nick Cave and his Soundsuits. That's followed by a seated dinner courtesy of renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, who will also make an appearance.

    Attire is listed as fashionably funky, but what else would you expect?
