Gig: Why?

Time to get excited. The ultra-cool Why? are bringing their acoustic piano tour to The Button Factory on October 22. Ever since the release of the stunning LP Alopecia in 2008 this Californian hipsters have been a favourite of mine. The music is a funky blend of hip-hop with indie rock placing a heavy emphasis on percussion. And if their beautifully original sound isn’t enough to win you over, the lyrical genius of vocalist Yoni Wolf surely will. Tickets go on sale Friday morning.
