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

Excellent show. Last half after intermission seemed too short. All four men contributed equally. Good choreography. I didn't recognize the slow song, performed exceedingly well as they sat on stools. This show has the makings of a Las Vegas act. We were expecting to see the choreography that was used by the Temptations re-enacted on the Temptations songs. The group may wish to consider two other Temptations songs, by lead singer, David Ruffin, 'Ain't Too Proud to Beg' and 'I Wish it Wouldn't Rain.' Great energy! The audience likes it when the performers take time to communicate by ad libbing. The group may wish to consider expanding on this a bit. Inspiring entertainment!!!
