An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. 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. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More
you cannot bring in any food, just sealed bottled water. They sell hot dogs, hamburgers and other choices but it's expensive as expected. $ 12 burgers, $6 hot dogs. They sell picnic baskets for 2 for about $ 49, not worth it in my opinion. I suggest eating before. There are picnic benches outside the venue.dining • Aug 27 2013 star this tip starred

As usual Peter was great, however B.B. was not in his best form. he played about 2 songs and got into about 20 minutes of rambling talk so it kind of put the brakes on the flow of the show. I have seen B.B. several times over the decades and he has always been good. He is a legend so I guess I can't complain. The rest of the show was great as well. Sonny landreth was fantastic as well as an guest appearance of Dean Deleon and Andy Summers.
