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

THE SHOW WAS VERY GOOD!! IT MOVED VERY WELL, THERE WAS A GOOD MIX OF MUSIC, COMEDY, AND REFLECTION ON AIDS AWARENESS. SHERYL LEE RALPH WAS BEAUTIFUL AND ELEGANT HOSTESS.FROM THE OPENING ACT OF FREDDY JACKSON(HONORARY DIVA) TO THE CLOSING OF THE BROADWAY DREAM GIRLS,,SHERYL LEE RALPH, LORETTA DEVINE,& JENNIFER HOLIDAY, THE AUDIENCE WAS WELL ENTERTAINED, ESECIALLY WITH BONNIE POINTER, THROWING HER LEG UP IN THE AIR AND NEAR WARDROBE MALFUNCTION!!
WE SAT IN REAR ORCHESTRA ROW Z.I PURCHASED 3 TIX, 2 WERE ON ONE SIDE OF THE THEATER THE OTHER WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE!!!
