Why? @ MidPoint Music Festival (Cincy) – 9/25

The band with the undisputed (in my mind) best album of the year, Why?, whose Alopecia garnered a undervalued 8.2 on Pitchfork, will be playing Cincinnati’s MidPoint Music Festival on September 25th. Back in March when I saw Why? with Thao Nguyen (one of the other best artists of the year), Yoni told us we’d see him again in the Fall.  While the entire schedule isn’t announced, Pomegranates, Boston Spaceships, The Purrs, Backyard the Fire, and Mystery Palace will also be there.

If you’re not yet a Why? fan, buy Alopecia, then get the entire back catalog in reverse chronological order (the albums are progressively easier to listen to).
