basically, we brought yacht out with us before in 2007, when it was just jona alone, facing the cold, hard world, and it was awesome. so awesome, in fact, that the “honchos” (i’m one of the supposed “honchos”) over at DFA totally put out the brilliant See Mystery Lights last year, and have been psyched to psyee jona, with the addition of collaborative member and person-of-grave-merit claire l. evans, (see below)
make a great show better each time they play. NOW, and this rules, they have a brand-new live incarnation: The Straight Gaze (rob kieswetter, jeffrey brodsky, and d. rueben snyder–according to the team “for all intents and purposes a psychic extension of YACHT“).

so there’s that.
yacht will be appearing with lcd in dublin, london, birmingham, leeds, glasgow, bristol, amsterdam, brussels, berlin, luxembourg and paris. i think.
