WPKN Presents!: The Yawpers + Johnny Mainstream

  • CAFE NINE 250 STATE ST NEW HAVEN CT 06510 (map)

A stripped down, brazen rock and roll band from Colorado, accompanied by overdriven acoustic guitars and a trap kit. Inspired by Whitman's promise to "sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world," The Yawpers have created a sound that is equal parts frenetic, earnest, and menacing, all while bringing together disparate pieces of the American musical lexicon.

Though less than three years old, the Yawpers have played hundreds of shows on both coasts, and everywhere in between, and have played with: Dr. Dog, The Cold War Kids, Reverend Horton Heat, Chad Price, Cracker, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Joe Buck, Will Hoge and many others.
