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 LACO chose a marvelous film this year.....Harold Lloyd is such a sensitive storyteller, and "Speedy" is my personal favorite. It was great to get the chance to see it on the big screen, and the score suited the film very nicely. And the views of New York....what a treat!! Thanks goldstar, for another marvelous opportunity to enjoy one of Hollywood's greatest treasures.
The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents Harold Lloyd’s whimsical and stylish Speedy (1928), a hilarious comedy shot on location in Manhattan, with an extended cameo by Babe Ruth. This movie has it all: New York’s last horse-drawn car, baseball, good guys and bad guys (guess who wins). The orchestra will accompany the silent film.
