Update: According to 11:11 Presents, the October 10 concert with Why? has been canceled along with the other US dates due to an injury.
“We wish Yani a quick recovery to his damaged hand,” 11:11 posted to their Facebook page. Ticket refunds will be handled Venture Theater. Questions about refunds, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The band, in an announcement on YouTube, said they hope to make up as many concerts as possible, possibly in the winter.
Avant folk-hop group WHY? has booked a late-autumn tour at a series of smaller venues–performances billed as preview shows for their new album. A follow-up to 2009’s Eskimo Snow, the trio is currently at work on the yet-to-be-named album.
Anticon artists via the Cincinnati/Bay Area, WHY? is composed of singer Yoni Wolf, his brother Josiah on drums and Doug McDiarmid on keys. WHY? was originally the concept and solo work of Yoni, who grew the project to full band with 2005’s Elephant Eyelash album.
WHY? performs Monday, October 10 at Venture Theatre with opening guests Serengeti. Reserved seating tickets go on sale Friday, July 22 at 12 p.m., available at the Venture Theatre box office or online at 1111presents.com.
