Releasing Alopecia in March and traversing the world almost non-stop (and getting the mumps at one point on the tour) isn’t enough to satisfy the three members of WHY? and convince them it’s time to go home and sit in the armchair a few minutes. The Oakland-based outfit is kicking off yet another lengthy slew of dates tonight in Los Angeles.
