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

Time Has Told Me: A Nick Drake Tribute by Christopher O’Riley
Long before True Love Waits, his groundbreaking recording of Radiohead transcriptions, Christopher O’Riley was widely regarded as an accomplished classical pianist whose poetic gifts and captivating virtuosity have made him one of today’s most versatile artists. A critical and commercial success, True Love Waits received four stars from Rolling Stone and was hailed for providing new insight into the pop group’s lovely brooding melodies. Following his performance of Elliott Smith works, O’Riley returns to Royce Hall to perform the music of the enigmatic British folk singer Nick Drake, who died in 1974 after releasing just three immensely influential albums.
