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

Had not been to La Fonda in 15 yearsThe Place is better than I remembered it. I took my wife to celebrate her birthday. Service is impecable. The Marachi Band was excellent as were the colorfully dressed forclorico dancers. Be prepared to well served and delicious authentic Mexican Food, made with fresh ingredients. I had salmon in a delicious green celantro sauce. She had the special of the evening (talpia and shrimp a specie red sauce (at no extra charge). My wife enjoyed her self emmensely Will definetly return and highly recommend it.
