LA electronic project, YACHT (Claire L. Evans (vocals), Jona Bechtolt, (vocal & programming), Rob Kieswetter (bass)) headlined a sold out show with supporting act Larry Gus in celebration for the band’s latest album, I Thought Future Would Be Cooler (Downtown Records) at Rough Trade.
With a huge LED screen on stage and the band’s dancey tunes, YACHT turned the venue into a giant club. Throughout the set, Evans left the stage several times, to sing, dance, and shout with fans. YACHT played tracks from both their previous albums and the new one, including “Ringtone,” “I Wanna F— You Till I’m Dead,” “L.A. Plays Itself” (The first music video the band released for this album, but could only be viewed when Uber in LA begins to surge pricing), and title track of the new album “I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler.”
For the rest of November, YACHT will be touring in Europe.
Opener Larry Gus also put on an impressive show. His set was full of movement, energy, strength and sweats. The Greece-born multi-instrumentalist just released his new album, I need New Eyes (DFA Records), and has been touting with YACHT.
