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

Since we missed half the show, it's only fair that I rate according to what we actually heard and saw that night. We arrived at the second. Very entertaining. Truly worth the drive from Long Beach! Patti and friends performed beautifully at an open-air concert with monitors strategically placed for those of us who were quite a distance from the stage. Disappointed to not see Patti dressed more elegantly. For example, a nice light summer dress that flowed with the evenings cool summer breeze to add to her diva presence! :-) Otherwise, Patti's vocals were in tune and the conductor together. A great evening to share with friends or perfect for a couples night out!
Running time for the show is about 90 minutes.
