Tickets are on sale now for a special unplugged gig from Anticon’s WHY? who’ll be rolling their grand piano up to The Button Factory on October 22nd.
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.
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.
