We first met New-York-by-way-of-Texas indie rockers Why Bonnie – whose sound I’ve described as “Americana-laced retro alt-rock” – this March, in the middle of SXSW and prior to a headlining date at Kung Fu Necktie in support of their debut LP, 90 in November, which dropped last August on Keeled Scales. And while that gig was actually the best show the Fishtown metalhead bar had hosted since installing a new stage, this June the Blair Howerton-led band returned to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection for a much bigger show, when they opened Union Transfer for Fenne Lily and Christian Lee Hutson. Why Bonnie are already gearing up to play their third 2023 show in the 215, and they’ll be returning to Eraserhood on November 1st, when they open Underground Arts for Americana singer/songwriter S.G. Goodman. And the band was kind enough to make a playlist of some of their favorite fall songs just for us! Check out what Blair and her crew are listening to this autumn!
