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

Getting to the Greek Theatre from the So Bay is a nightmare....over 2 hrs. The show was very late in getting started.....more than 1/2 hour. There were only seven acts which was considerably less than the "top ten" advertised. It was very difficult to see what was happening on stage even with the video screens. Konichi Ebina's act was lost in the lighting. Definitely not the type of venue needed for a show of this kind. To their credit, the performers did their best but it was clear that they didn't feel comfortable. All in all, it LOOKED like it was thrown together at the last minute and was a waste of "talent". Hopefully their other city performances aren't like this. Wanted to see "Forte".....but that didn't happen for some reason. Mostly... a waste of an evening. Too bad!
