So the WHY? (Anticon/Tomlab) intimate grand piano UK tour starts next Sunday in Bristol. All venues have now sold over 85% of tickets so best not to wait around if ya fancy going.
Oh and for those of you who messaged us about Yoni's (Why?) hand, the operation was successful and the European tour is definitely on. Here's a video diary Yoni and Josiah did about the break and the shows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxAIlVMWPzU
23 Oct - Colston Hall 2, Bristol
24 Oct - Union Chapel, London
25 Oct - Duke Of Yorks Picturehouse, Brighton
WHY? are a trio of gifted musicians with visionary Yoni Wolf at the helm. Their unique fusion of intelligent, emotive and wry lyrics, taut rhythms and stirring electronic sounds synthesise in compelling ways and evade simplistic genre classifications of hip hop or pop. Instead presenting a patchwork of styles which offers something new for their ever-expanding fanbase and live audiences. With a prolific output of acclaimed albums from the considered classics "Oaklandazulasylum" and "Elephant Eyelash" to the more recently applauded "Alopecia" and "Eskimo Snow", and also revered for their live performances, WHY? show no signs of slowing down.
It comes with great pride to announce that this October, One Inch Badge and Tidal Shift Concerts present WHY? as fans have never seen them before, unplugged, up close and personal.
Yoni and Josiah Wolf and Doug McDiarmid will be performing their canon of fan favourites, cult classics, covers, as well as previewing songs from their much anticipated, still untitled fifth album. Yoni will lead the performances, playing all songs on the grand piano. At each stop, the crowd will be seated, treated to behind-the-scenes jaw-jacking and the shows will take place in some of the UK's most idyllic buildings and intimate spaces to offer something really special for their devotees. Here are the full details:
23 Oct - Colston Hall 2, Bristol (Grade II listed building and fully functioning gig venue)
24 Oct - Union Chapel, London (Grade II listed building, a working church and sublime sounding venue for live music)
25 Oct - Duke Of Yorks Picturehouse, Brighton (the oldest functioning cinema in the country)
