YACHT Joins LCD Soundsystem Tour

wk2206yachtHuge! As an insanely last minute thing, YACHT's been asked to join LCD Soundsystem--the hot shit of hot shit crossover dance music (believe the hype)--on tour...starting this Monday in San Francisco. There's really not much to say about that: big time. Congrats to Jona Bechtolt (YACHT) on scoring the gig, and scoring it without having to postpone or cancel next Saturday's sure to be legendary YACHT on a yacht/YACHT at OMSI night of glee.

Check in with Local Cut on Friday for the (sorta) first edition of Travel Light, our weekly space on all things electronic music in Portland for some words with Bechtolt about the forthcoming chaos and awesome.

The dates:

04-30 San Francisco, CA - Mezzanine
05-02 Seattle, WA - Showbox
05-03 Vancouver, British Columbia - Commodore
05-06 Chicago, IL - Metro
05-07 Detroit, MI - Majestic Theater
05-08 Toronto, Ontario - Phoenix Concert Theater
05-09 Montreal, Quebec - Spectrum de Montreal
05-11 Boston, MA - Avalon
05-12 Brooklyn, NY - Studio B
05-13 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
05-14 New York, NY - Webster Hall

Also, if you haven't gotten to work on your Photoshopping, get clicking. Only three days left to see who can best put themselves digitally on a yacht with YACHT, for a pair of free tickets to the nautical portion of next Saturday's show. Details here.
