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 wonderful Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra added depth and emotion to the amazing films of genius Charlie Chaplin. Although I've seen these films many times, nothing compares to seeing them on a big screen in the dark with live music.
The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra proudly presents Charlie Chaplin’s extraordinary comedies, A Dog’s Life (1918) and _Shoulder Arms _(1918). The original Chaplin scores have been restored, adapted and conducted by Timothy Brock, performed live by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
The program also features a screening of Walt Disney’s “Trolley Troubles” (1927). This rare short black-and-white animation was directed and produced by Walt Disney and is noted for the first appearance of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a trolley conductor whose trolley goes completely out of control! “Trolley Troubles” features a new film score composed by Alexander Rannie.
