WHY? with Serengeti

Why? Play Clip

WHY? is the project of Cincinnati-born, Berkeley-based wordsmith Jonathan 'Yoni' Wolf. Originally minted as Wolf's rap handle, WHY? has since grown into a three-piece band, in which our protagonist is flanked by his brother, Josiah, and Doug McDiarmid.

Though WHY? has shifted from backpacker rap to indie-pop, Wolf's neurotic, comic, and intensely confessional lyricism —which has been compared to Woody Allen and Larry David(!)— has remained its constant. At the Paramount, the band will be previewing material from their just recorded release.

Opening for WHY? Will be Anticon labelmates Serengeti.
