An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More

Truly a Night of Love... Lots of stars onstage, lots of memories and pure entertainment. In tribute to a lovely lady, the performers all shared moments and memories while entertaining with a short opportunity to shine. They all shine like the stars they are. Peter Marshall stood out in my mind. Known as a TV host, his Broadway background is solid as a rock at age 83. Bruce Vilance MC's and kept things light as show stoppers followed each other all night. The seats were upgraded to "Premium" for no extra charge and were center theater middle of the house! Great! A new member is really pleased....
A benefit evening in support of a mutual friend in need, Marilynn Lovell Matz.
Hosted by Bruce Vilanch
Starring Tim Conway, Sam Harris, Chuck McCann, Peter Marshall, Karen Morrow, and more to come.
A tribute evening of great musical and comedic performance
Marilynn and her late husband Peter Matz devoted their time and talent performing all over America to raise money for AIDS.
Now Marilynn finds herself in the position of needing our help. Her financial situation is quite serious. So her many friends are gathering to pay tribute and give support to Marilynn, the generous loving woman she has always been.
Directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman and Produced by Howard Storm, with special thanks to Susan Dietz, Marcia Seligson, Joe Soldo and Marc Price.
