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

what a fun show this was. hearing los lobos' spin on "the tiki tiki tiki tiki room" and "heigh-ho!" was great and they also played the handy manny theme song, "clap your hands" and of course "la bamba" (mashed up with the rascal's hit "good lovin'"!) it was nice to see so many kids especially the cute ones dancing in a mosh pit at the edge of the stage. our awesome seats were 7th row center. thanks goldstar!
it was only an hour long matinee but the prices were cheaper than the 2 hour show that evening. short but definitely sweet! check out my photo from the meet and greet after the show.
The Pride of East L.A. rocks the Magic Kingdom. For this special matinee performance, tunes from Walt Disney animated classics—songs beloved by generations—get twists and personality that could only come from Los Lobos. Their latest album “Los Lobos Goes Disney” offers unique takes on old Disney favorites “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” and “The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.” Bring the whole family for this once in a lifetime concert they will not soon forget!
