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

This is the music I grew up with. I love it! Steve Miller is always awesome. I never get tired of hearing him play LIVE. It was a nice touch that his band was celebrating the 4oth anniversary of The Joker album. He broke out some really nice guitars! The Doobie Brothers are a fine example of a band that keeps on rocking! Their vocals were in excellent form; the harmonies immaculate. I remember pretty much all of their landmark hits and where I was when they originally came out. Even though there are only two founding members left in the band, the whole group came together to provide a fine listening experience.
