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

Live music and lasers, what more needs to be said. The band was great and the acoustics were good. Jim Ladd was on the mark, his voice is always hypnotic and his words are poetic. I hope that Laserium will continue to have live music after they refit the venue.
CIRCA: was formed by veteran Yes rockers Billy Sherwood, Tony Kaye and Alan White with Jimmy Haun on lead guitar. As this lineup CIRCA: released and independently distributed their debut CD and a live DVD that documents their historical first live show. In 2008 CIRCA: underwent a change in lineup. Their latest recording “CIRCA: HQ” is now available; featuring Billy Sherwood (lead vocals and bass), Tony Kaye (keyboards), Jimmy Haun (guitar and vocals), and Jay Schellen (drums and vocals).
