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

Why put in that obnoxious little disclaimer (or allow them to put it in) about my having to pick up my ticket a half hour early or it will be released. I walked up just before the show, and it was luckily still there.
I paid for that ticket. It was charged to my credit card. If they had decided to sell it to somebody else, I was actually planning to get a lawyer.
It isn't nice, and it makes people angry. If I am only reserving the ticket, fine--if I don't come in time, release it. But if I have already been charged for it, please don't threaten and insult me.
Program includes music from Bach, led by conductor and harpsichordist Masaaki Suzuki:
- B minor Suite for Flute and Strings
- Harpsichord Concerto in D minor
- Concerto for Two Violins
- Brandenburg Concerto No. 5
