Dry River Yacht Club's New Video Tells "The Legend of El Tigre"
Fans of Phoenix music already know that Dry River Yacht Club can rock all the
best local music venues. They get down at the Crescent, they can pack the Sail Inn -- Marquee Theatre, Rhythm Room. Check, check, check.
But a lot of local bands can do that. Where the Yacht Club stands out is its ability to not only play for your average music fan, but keep the ears of crowds at events like Sunday's A'Fair at the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts. Or down in Tucson at the more spiritual All Souls Procession.
While they were pleasing those diverse crowds, they were putting the finishing touches on their video "The Legend of El Tigre" -- released today 1:13 p.m. Watch it below.
The two-hour Sunday afternoon set in Scottsdale was a jovial midday concert opened by Walt Richardson and attracted nearly 1,000 people. The Yacht Club played a plethora of songs from its catalog. Of course, much of the set came from the November release El Tigre, but the band also dipped into its older repertoire, playing "Spider Song," "Broken Back, and "Happy Ending Love Lost" off of their sophomore release, The Ugliest Princess.
The Yacht Club also unveiled two new yet-to-be-titled tracks, one of which, an upbeat ragtime/swing song, was a song written for Lee Jacobson, one of the biggest donors to the band's Indiegogo campaign for El Tigre.
