After releasing a solo album and announcing a tour in March, WHY? drummer Josiah Wolf will play some of that solo stuff opening for some new WHY? tour dates. They’ve both extended their separate tours, which crisscross throughout the West Coast, as well.
Wolf will open for his band on May 27th in Vancouver and the 28th in Portland, before joining the indie hip-hop group at Sasquatch. He will continue to open for the band on its three dates in California before going solo for a while. After crossing the country, his tour ends June 21st in Pittsburgh. WHY? will then play a show with Deerhoof in Minneapolis on the 26th and play a couple gigs at the Sled Island Festival in Calgary to start off July. The summer tour ends at Pitchfork Festival on July 17th.
You can get tickets for WHY? here and Josiah Wolf here. Wolf has offered up a sample of his work in the form of a free “Ohioho” mp3 (see below); additionally, check out WHY?’s video for “These Hands/January Twenty Something” below.
