Yoni Wolf with Serengeti and Stranger Cat
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 the Midwest and Northeast. Best known for his unique range of styles and themes as the lead singer in WHY? Yoni is returning to his roots as a rapper. He will perform songs spanning his entire career: early 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 is straight-up rap.
He will be joined on the tour by his friend and collaborator Serengeti, the Chicago rap visionary whose 2014 albums Sisyphus and Kenny Dennis III showed up on many year-end favorite lists. Opening the night is Stranger Cat, the fresh electro-pop project of Cat Martino (Sufjan Stevens, Sharon Van Etten, The Shins, Son Lux).
