David Byrne and the Atomic Bomb Band will be playing the music of William Onyeabor. This concert should be otherworldly, considering the lusciously rhythmic and interesting landscape of music William created. Recently this new ensemble played The Tonight Show,treating the audiences to A Fantastic Man. On Tuesday, May 6th they will transform The Warfield with their take on Onyeabor's tunes. What a great night to grace an iconic San Francisco concert theater. Showtime is 8 pm and tickets range in price from $35-$45, not bad considering one living legend will be playing another legend's music. The band has some elite talent from other vivid scenes too (see image). Below is a video of their Tonight Show performance. If this is any indication of things to come, those attending the NY, SF & LA shows are in for a spectacular display. Boom goes the Bomb.
