Portland’s “band, belief system, and business” Yacht are back in town for a gig in The Workman’s Club on May 3rd, with Tieranniesaur and Catscars.
YACHT is an acronym of “Young Americans Challanging High Technology”.
YACHT was born in 2002 in Portland, Oregon as a solo cross-disciplinary experiment for Jona Bechtolt, using technology to extend physical boundaries of communication, performance, and music.
In 2008, after a shared mystical experience in the Far West Texas desert, Bechtolt was joined in the YACHT endeavor by longtime collaborator Claire L. Evans. Spurred by this paranormal bond, this new incarnation of YACHT wrote and recorded “See Mystery Lights” in Marfa, Texas. In 2010, The Straight Gaze — Robert “Bobby Birdman”
Kieswetter and Jeffrey “Jerusalem” Brodsky — rounded out the live presentation of all YACHT music.
YACHT is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans of Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA. All people are welcome to become members of YACHT. Accordingly, YACHT is and always will be what YACHT is when YACHT is standing before you.
