Alopecia, by Why? was my favourite record of 2008 so news of a special 10th anniversary show in Dublin is most welcome.
The band play a 10 Year Alopecia Anniversary show at Button Factory on September 17th.
Tickets €26 plus fee includes booking fee on sale Wednesday, 23rd May at 10am from Ticketmaster.ie.
With its rich instrumentation rooted in indie-rock and its confessional narrative borrowed from abstract hip-hop, Alopecia is a unique hybrid that is sometimes uncomfortably personal, frequently visceral, always engaging and wholly convincing. In Yoni Wolf, Why? have a lyricist with the ability to relay real-life with real-life poetics. Music as unpretentious art.
