SXSW // YACHT

Packed into a venue on the East Side of Austin, a rowdy crowd of devoted YACHT fans waited for the duo to show themselves. When they appeared, Jona Bechtolt in black and Claire L. Evans in white, the crowd immediately started to sway to the YACHT rhythm. Evans, wearing an oversized white shirt dress addressed the crowd, “What’s up Industry Taste Makers, What’s up Buzz Machine.” The crowd was far gone on planet YACHT as soon as the beats dropped. We caught up with YACHT the next day. Walking with Evans and Bechtolt to their last show, we stopped in a strange enclave just off of 6th st. With YACHT cozied up in a corner, we got the chance to hear what they really thought about the aforementioned “Buzz Machine.” If there is a planet YACHT out there, consider us card carrying citizens.
