WHY? to Rock Tangier Tommorrow!

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

It's uncommon that a rapper takes the name he used for over 6 years and transforms it into an indie-rock band, but founder Yoni Wolf is known for breaking the rules and getting great results. Operating within the Anticon collective Why?'s sound is self described as "smart, shimmering, sweetly soured" and front man Yoni's delivery as a "candytime-dissonant, singsong-suicide style".

Anyways, this is a special intimate performance previewing material from the band's forthcoming album, Alopecia, out March 11th on Anticon. Check out the embedded sound clip below and their Myspace out for a gang of their tracks. Don't sleep on this!
