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

I took my daughter and her friend and they loved it. For me, it was a reminder that rock and roll is really made for kids. The sheer emotion of the place, with thousands or screaming teenagers was quite something. And it was 3 solid hours of music.
The Walt Disney Company presents Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato in a special concert to benefit the City of Hope.
The multitalented Miley Cyrus has captivated kids and families on Disney Channel’s smash hit comedy series “Hannah Montana,” the hugely popular TV series for kids age 6-14. Her triple platinum Hannah Montana soundtrack became the first ever TV soundtrack to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2007, the 15-year-old followed that record with a two-disc set, Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus, which also entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and has since earned triple-platinum status. Cyrus became the youngest artist to have two #1 hits in less than a year. In late January, Cyrus completed a 70-date sold-out concert tour, and by early February had the #1 film in the country with the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D release, “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.” Her album Breakout on Hollywood Records debuted at #1 this month. Walt Disney Studios’ “Hannah Montana: The Movie” will be in theaters in spring 2009 and production has resumed on the “Hannah Montana” TV series.
One of today’s most popular teen groups, the Jonas Brothers write hook-filled power pop anthems in the vein of McFly, Hanson and the Modern Lovers. Brothers Joe, Kevin, and Nick Jonas released their full-length debut, It’s About Time, in 2006, which earned the siblings a modest audience, particularly among fans of Radio Disney. Their sophomore album, Jonas Brothers, arrived in August 2007, supported by a number of Jonas Brothers appearances on the Disney Channel’s various programs. The band also toured in support of the record, selling out shows coast to coast—including a stop at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles, which was the fastest sold-out show in the venue’s history. The reality television show “Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream” documented the band’s life on the road, and the band’s TV presence was furthered along by “Camp Rock,” a 2008 Disney Channel television movie that was watched by 8.9 million viewers and launched the Jonas Brothers’ next single, “Burnin’ Up.” Their latest album, A Little Bit Longer, was released on August 12, 2008.
Up-and-coming star Demi Lovato co-starred with the Jonas Brothers in 2008 Disney Channel television movie “Camp Rock.” The singer/actress is currently on tour with the Jonas Brothers at venues across the country.
