Yoni Wolf solo rap Tour May 2014

Yoni Wolf

Yoni Wolf of WHY? Embarking on Solo Rap Tour
With Serengeti and other special guests including Anticon DJs ]

Yoni Wolf, the frontman of WHY?, is heading out on a rap-only tour this May sponsored by his podcast, THE WANDERING WOLF.  The eclectic lyricist, singer, and rapper is bringing an MC/DJ show to six cities in Arizona and California.

Best known for his unique range of styles and themes as the lead singer in the indie-rap hybrid WHY?, Yoni will be returning to his roots as a rapper.  He will be performing songs spanning his entire career:  e
arly to new WHY?, cLOUDDEAD, Reaching Quiet, guest spots on songs by Alias and Themselves, remixes by Boards of Canada, Dntel, and more.  But don't expect a WHY? show or a crooning Yoni next to a piano.  This will be straight-up rap.  

He will be joined on tour by his friend and collaborator Serengeti, the Chicago rap visionary who just released an acclaimed album with Sisyphus--the super-group, art-pop extravaganza that is Serengeti, Son Lux, and Sufjan Stevens. 

Watch Yoni rapping in the new WHY? video for "Waterlines" here at the AV Club.
Watch Serengeti in the new Sisyphus video for "Booty Call" here.
Listen to The Wandering Wolf podcast.
