Funk has a friend in Bootsy Collins, one of the most flamboyant and flashy "funk 'n' roll" musicians around. Playing bass with James Brown in the late-'60s and then beaming up to the Mothership to join Parliament-Funkadelic in the '70s, Collins has made a career out of mastering the groove, and his show at First Avenue this Thursday should be a treat for old and new funk fans alike.

Gimme Noise has a pair of tickets to the show on Thursday, and we'd like to send one of our readers for free. To enter, simply tell us what you love about Bootsy in the comments, and we'll randomly draw a winner at the end of the day.

An important note: Be sure to use a functional email address when you comment, as we use email to confirm with the contest winner. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose.

BOOTSY COLLINS plays this Thursday, June 9 at First Avenue. 18+. $31. 6 p.m.

I like that the first time I learned about him was when he did "Groove is in the Heart" with Dee Lite.

I love Bootsy because he's bloody brilliant and full of the funk of life that makes me wake up everyday and be glad I'm not dead, plus he was on the goddam blessed Mothership, that alone makes him OG baddass alone.

Besides playing with James Brown and George Clinton, I love his smooth delivery of one-liners.  Glory be, the funk's on me!
