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 ever-resilient Marianne Faithfull returns to Royce Hall for a concert featuring the work on her latest critically acclaimed album, “Easy Come Easy Go.” A rock icon since the 1964 when she recorded the hit “As Tears Go By,” Faithfull has, despite hard times, re-emerged repeatedly onto the pop music scene in the decades since, each time with something profound to offer listeners. Her latest collection of songs, carefully selected with famed record producer Hal Willner, shows how masterfully she makes any song fully her own, whether it’s Dolly Parton’s “Down from Dover,” Billie Holiday’s “Solitude” or “The Crane Wife 3” by contemporary indie band The Decemberists. For this performance, Marianne will be joined by a magical quartet of Greg Cohen on bass, Smokey Hormel on guitar, Rob Burger on keyboards and Joey Baron on drums.
