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

Admission tickets to any high end entertainment are steep in cost. Consequently, plan to eat out before you head out to the music center. There is no major restaurants at a walking distance. The ones in there are what you expect when there is no option available--will squeeze the green out of your wallet. By the way, bring your own wine bottle and glasses and some small items to eat because you can. The court area allows people to pic nic two hours before show time. The parking is $8 and well spent because is just below the music center and again you can bring some pic nic food and have plenty of time to return to your car to dispose of your dirty glasses. Good luck and make it a great date.
