Celebrating 10 years of making music as YACHT, Jona and company played to a sold out crowd at LA’s Echoplex on December 8th, 2012 playing songs from their whole oeuvre. With DJ Jacques Renault warming up the crowd (or was it angering… chants of YACHT could be heard from the first few rows) with an ear shattering, extremely long set.
With YACHT starting almost an hour late, the excited crowd (myself included) got right into dancing as soon as Jona took the stage, with Claire L. Evans and the rest of the band following shortly after. The celebratory performance was a best of set that included crowd favorites The Afterlife, Utopia, and Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire). Let’s hope YACHT has another 10 plus years in them. Check out YACHT’s new single and video, Second Summer in collaboration with ADHD.
