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

Unfortunately the person I really was looking forward to seeing was El Debarge who was a NO Show! Very disappointing. When Johnny Gill came out the music and mikes sounded horrible, like a sound check was never done. It took more than half the set for them to correct the problem. His new music was great when you could understand the words and the New Edition song, Can You Stand The Rain, was the best! This was only my second time seeing Brian McKnight and I am a FAN for life! His musicians were top rate and just outstanding, love the Bass Player..he should have introduced the band. His performance was just so polished! He was the saving grace for the evening and he even sang ONE Christmas song, I would have enjoyed more!
