Viva PHX: YACHT, Nite Jewel, Painted Palms, Bogan Via - Crescent Ballroom - 3/7/14

Categories: Last Night

Jona Bechtolt of YACHT at Crescent Ballroom last night.


YACHT is beyond words because it is YACHT. Duh.

Lemme say this: the entire set I had this uncontrollable urge to leap onstage and dance alongside the androgynous beauty that commanded the microphone, but I convinced myself it wasn't worth getting a lifetime ban from Crescent and/or breaking my cell phone when I leapt into the crowd.

Claire L. Evans of YACHT.

Speaking of cell phones and crowds, I also felt an urge to violently attack people on their fucking phones. Yet, Yacht encouraged taking pictures and sending tweets right after a song they did condemning the NSA. Maybe I'm just a bitter old man. But I'll tell you I danced like a motherfucker with his jeans on fire and tried to mosh with a few people but they were totally not in the mood and shoved me back a lot. Fuck you dumb, skittish suburbanites that don't know how to have a good time. I hope Yacht casts a demonic spell on you or something.

Personal Bias: I need to get out more to remind myself why I like to stay in more.

The Crowd: Well, since it was like one-tenth of everybody, I think if you look in a mirror you'd get a good idea who was there and who wasn't.

Overheard: "The bass is ... resonating ... inside me!"
