Why? at Gothic Theatre, 9/5/12


WHY? @ GOTHIC THEATRE | 9/05/12

After a great set from Why?, no one seemed to be in a hurry to leave the Gothic last night, so the band came back on stage for an encore. The rapid xylophone figure meant the band was going to play "A Sky For Shoeing Horses Under." Immediately the audience reacted like everyone had been hoping to hear the song all night, so much so that Yoni Wolf wouldn't even had to have opened his mouth because everybody knew the words.
