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

Arturo was charming, and made the Luckman feel like a much smaller club. I probably won't purchase tickets from Goldstar for the theatre though. They always put us in the very back of the orchestra on the end beneath the overhanging balcony. The sound is strange and very claustrophobic. The ushers were kind enough to let us move upstairs to the half empty balcony. The sound was great... especially for the amplified big band.
Join the Luckman in reliving the worldwide 50’s Mambo dance craze headed by the legendary Arturo Sandoval. Mambo Mania features a full big band, 20 piece orchestra and is a show beyond any seen from this artist! The concert will feature tributes to the creator of Mambo, Perez Prado, maestro Tito Puente and Sandoval’s original compositions from the movie Mambo Kings.
