Why? @ Northside Tavern – 9/24

Why? is coming back to Cincinnati’s Northside Tavern on Sept 24th to kick off their tour to promote their upcoming album Eskimo Snow, which Yoni describes as being more about song-songs with arrangements more closely reflecting the traditional. Already listening to the new “This Blackest Purse”, you can tell we’re in for something different, as Yoni says this is the farthest thing from hip-hop he’s ever done. We’ve caught Why? twice before, first at Southgate and again at MidPoint (review), and I listed it as my top album of 2008. While my fanaticism might be a little off-putting, I highly recommend that you check into this band if you don’t yet know them and make the drive to Cincinnati…it’ll be worth it.

If you can’t make that date, there’s always Bloomington, IN’s Rhino’s Youth Center on Nov. 1th with the Moore Brothers
