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

Quotes & Highlights
“Go to a Cheap Trick show, fan or not, and you will witness a memorable concert!” —ConcertLiveWire
“They’re a healing force in music.” —Beatles producer George Martin
For the last 30 years, Cheap Trick has thrilled rock fans with its hard-edged yet blissful pop sound that combines the tunefulness of classic bands like The Beatles with the speed and energy of punk rock. The band’s biggest hits include “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” “Dream Police,” “Don’t Be Cruel” (a cover of Elvis’s hit) and “The Flame.” Cheap Trick’s newest release, Rockford, has gained critical acclaim. With unusual rock songs, catchy lyrics and signature choruses that have permanently branded themselves in every fan’s brain, the band’s music is still relevant and vital.
