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

Roxette sounded like they always have. Good show.
Now come the "butt".
The voucher said the "show" starts at 815. At 830 we had some guy from KROC dj music for about 30 minutes which made no sense to me. At least have a front band.
Second, the music was SO loud, that the music was distorted coming out of the speakers. I asked three or four people what the decibel level was and they didn't know. I finally had to go to the customer relations office and they offered me ear plugs. I used them and went back into the show.
I saw one idiot couple come in with a new born baby. I can't imagine what happened to that poor kids ears. People who don't understand you don't bring a baby to a loud concert should be neutered so they don't have any more. Just a thought
