AJJ WHY?
7:00 PM (America/Denver GMT-06:00)
Zootown Arts Community Center
Description:
Comprising core members Sean Bonnette (acoustic guitar) and Ben Gallaty (upright bass), AJJ is a
folk-punk outfit from Phoenix, Arizona. They formed as Andrew Jackson Jihad in 2004, when
frontman Bonnette was still a teenager, and the duo quickly began writing humorously explicit
music with macabre themes. In 2016, after having been referred to as AJJ by many of their fans for
years, the band members officially changed their name, saying they no longer wanted to be either
a reminder of the former President or disrespectful (as non-Muslims). The Bible 2 arrived under
the AJJ moniker that summer and landed on multiple Billboard charts, including the rock,
alternative, and independent albums charts. Yoni Wolf has spent the last two decades traveling
the remote sonic terrain where underground hip hop, avant-pop, and psych-rock meet. In that
time he’s cultivated a unique sound, and a unique position as one of contemporary music’s most
distinctive voices.
Some of Yoni’s most compelling and critically-praised musical experiments have been issued
under the moniker WHY?, but Yoni has been involved in various other freewheeling music
projects, including Yoni & Geti, Hymie’s Basement, and the seminal CLOUDDEAD.
