An all-star lineup -- including David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Money Mark, Joshua Redman, Sinkane and the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years -- takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). 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. Learn More

This was our first time attending an Aimee Mann concert. We really enjoyed her quirky humor, lovely singing and low key energy. The show started thirty minutes late and ended before 10:30, so we thought it was a bit short for a concert. The Wiltern is a good place for this kind of event: comfortable and with good seating.
Like trimming the tree, Christmas caroling, and wondering why Santa is such a jerk to Rudolph, the Aimee Mann Christmas Show is an annual holiday tradition. Now in it’s 6th year, Aimee will be singing holiday music along with her hits and will be joined by special guests Paul F. Tompkins, Michael Penn, Tim Heidecker, and many more!
