Why? Plot Massive Tour

Why? Plot Massive Tour
For the girlfriends of Oakland post-hip-hop crew Why?, 2008 is going to be lonely from here on out. In support of their excellent spring-released Alopecia full-length, the trio, led by Yoni Wolf, will embark upon a massive world tour that spans from tonight in Germany until mid-November in… Germany! That’s more than a full trimester of touring!

Between the German bookends, the crew will traverse North America. Their U.S. dates will include support from Anacortes-based songwriter Mount Eerie. There are also two Canadian stops in Montreal and Vancouver.
