He plays the Rock Hall’s monthly Sonic Sessions program at 9 that night.

George Clinton of Parliament/Funkadelic fame participates in an Inductee Author Series that takes place at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 9, at the Black Box Theatre of the Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts of Cuyahoga Community College, adjacent to the Rock Hall’s Library and Archives. At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 18, hip-hop photographer Joe Conzo
