The Los Angeles-based conceptual pop group known as YACHT are pleased to announce a North American tour this fall that will take them across the country in September and October, with all dates below and tickets going on sale this Friday, June 13th at 11 AM EST
White Fang, the bad boys of Burger Records, will support.
2014 has seen YACHT perform and speak at Asheville’s Moogfest, surprise Coachella fans by playing “Psychic City” with fellow Angelenos Classixx, and release the single & video for “Plastic Soul” on DFA Records.
The brainchild of Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, YACHT have also expanded on their creativity-fueled DIY ethos by creating a free iPhone app called 5 Every Day, an interactive tool that suggests five interesting things to do in Los Angeles each day. The selections are edited by YACHT and broken into five categories—Art, City, Food, Music, and Wildcard–ranging from architectural sights and hikes to art happenings, secret shows, neighborhood favorites, ethnic grocery stores, and club nights.
The app has no calendar, no archive. 5 Every Day is an online tool, but it points outwards, suggesting and creating ephemeral moments that enrich users’ lives, every day. YACHT is celebrating the launch of 5 Every Day with a blow-out party on July 24that the historic Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Like the app, and the city itself, it will be full of surprises, with more details to come.
