We’re proud to announce WHY? Plays Alopecia, Saturday, November 3rd 2018, celebrating the 10th anniversary of their seminal album.
Tickets are available HERE.
When Alopecia (LISTEN HERE) dropped in 2008, it redefined WHY? from Yoni Wolf’s solo project to a powerful trio of multi-instrumentalist musicians making material that defied genre and became required listening for all fans of indie music. Taking grips from folk, psych-rock, pop, and several healthy doses of hip-hop lyricism, WHY? created something singular with Alopecia, reveling in finding beauty and humor in things like mortality, self-deprecation, and all-consuming desperation. It was jubilant, melancholy, bizarre, and altogether different from anything else we were hearing at the time.
In recording Alopecia, Yoni and WHY? forged a widely-loved album that was as accessible as it was weighty. Meaningful and musically impressive, the record cemented itself in a crucial moment all its own amidst the late ’00s era of internet-dominant independent music. One decade and celebrated re-issue later, WHY? embark on a commemorative tour to revisit the album from front to back, inviting fans and newcomers alike to experience it viscerally in a live setting once more.
