As part of Blue Note Jazz Festival’s Miami Beach pop-up, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic will take the stage at the North Beach Bandshell on Friday. In 2019, Clinton announced he was finished with touring, but it seems the allure of taking the stage with Parliament-Funkadelic was too enticing to resist. Following the Miami Beach show, several more dates will take the legendary musician across the country. If you want to catch the funk icon in the flesh, this might be your last chance — don’t waste it. 7 p.m. Friday, at North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-672-5202; Tickets cost $60.

If Lady Starlight‘s name sounds familiar, perhaps it’s from her stint as Lady Gaga’s opening act until the ArtRave Tour of 2014. The two became good friends as performers on New York City’s Lower East Side. In a departure from her pop-leaning days, Lady Starlight’s sound has become decidedly techno since she relocated to Berlin.
