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

What a concert!!! Enjoyed every act, except BRENTON WOOD was on way too long. His set was longer than THE MAIN INGREDIENT and THE STYLISTICS... who closed the evening with all their wonderful hits! All Brenton Wood's music has two (2) main chord changes and is in the same "12/8 ballad" feel. He has two hit up-tempo songs, but only did one of them, "Oogum Boogum", opting for more ballads (and ballads need a good vocal and his 71 year old voice was not the greatest...which did not help his songs or set.) It got to be very boring. But overall, this was a really wonderful evening! Took me back to high school days (I think some folks thought they were back in high school by the smell of "weed" in the night air. I was in that second level and you could have gotten a contact high as the evening went on.) So glad I was there.
