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

Quotes & Highlights
“When it comes to God-given talent that can mesmerize an audience today, Savion Glover is some kind of miracle.” —The New York Times
Savion Glover propelled tap dance into the modern age with his breathtaking, Tony Award-winning turn in Broadway’s 1996 smash hit Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk. Now, this tap sensation takes on the classics in his ecstatic new production Classical Savion, described by The New York Times as “a revelation for eye and ear alike.” Backed by his four-piece jazz ensemble, The Otherz, and a ten-piece string ensemble, Glover performs his uniquely innovative choreography to works by a host of master composers, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Stravinsky and Bach.
