It’s hard to believe that WHY?’s career-defining record, Alopecia, is already 10 years old. For this rare visit to Irish shores, WHY? will be celebrating that anniversary by performing the album in full this September in The Button Factory.
Fans can revisit the seedy depths of Yoni Wolf’s self-eviscerating lyrics as he drags himself over the coals of every broken relationship he has ever had on the unforgettable Good Friday, hear him detail his darkest revenge fantasies on The Fall of Mr. Fifths, or exploring the physical ailments he sees as a part of his birthright (Crohn’s Disease) or as a bodily manifestation of his mental anxieties (the eponymous alopecia). It is truly a classic from start to finish.
Initially a lo-fi solo project by Yoni Wolf, WHY? is now a fully fleshed-out band that mixes low-slung hip hop grooves, indie rock instrumentation, and the music school chops of Yoni’s drummer and percussionist brother Josiah.
A tight and exhilarating live prospect, this special anniversary show will no doubt have a rapt crowd rapping along with every incredible line of Yoni Wolf’s words.
