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 is my second christmas dinner at the la fonda. Service was good waiters were made available for anything we needed. Great show would highly recommend if considering to go. The Friday and Saturday show has a lilttle extra to offer. In addition to the mariachis playing, mexican traditional dancers perform. Really a must see
A Los Angeles tradition, La Fonda will celebrate this Christmas Day with two special mariachi dinner shows. La Fonda has served its traditional Mexican cuisine along with amazing Mariachi performances since 1968. This Christmas, the passion of the Mexican tradition will fuse with the festivities and entertainment at La Fonda.
For this special celebration, famed celebrity chef Aaron J. Perez will be hosting our guests with complimentary champurrado and buñuelos and will also be creating a very special menu. La Fonda’s featured group Mariachi Los Reyes and special guests Mariachi Monumental de America will present a special double Christmas Day show starting at 7:30pm.
