Yacht - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
YACHT is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans of Los Angeles, California, Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA. All people are welcome to become members of YACHT. Accordingly, YACHT is what YACHT is when YACHT is standing before you.

YACHT was born in 2002 in Portland, Oregon, as a solo cross-disciplinary experiment for Jona Bechtolt, using technology to extend physical bo2undaries of communication, performance, and music. In 2008, after a shared mystical experience in the Far West Texas desert, Bechtolt was joined in the YACHT endeavor by longtime collaborator Claire L. Evans. Spurred by this paranormal bond, this new incarnation of YACHT wrote and recorded “See Mystery Lights” in Marfa, Texas.

Currently, the Straight Gaze -- Robert "Bobby Birdman" Kieswetter, Jeffrey "Jerusalem" Brodsky, and Katy Davidson of the Key Losers -- round out the live presentation of YACHT. YACHT's heart is in these live presentations: uncluttered, inspiring sessions of damaged dance moves and coded ritualism, backed by constantly changing elements -- Power Point presentations, audience Q&A sessions, and shamanistic video environments.

YACHT has toured with LCD Soundsystem (R.I.P.), the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Architecture in Helsinki, and Vampire Weekend; YACHT is multidisciplinary enough to have been paired with the Chemical Brothers, the Breeders, and Phoenix; YACHT has played on boats, in caves, in bathrooms, in art galleries and museums, in rural China, and at the Hollywood Bowl.

Bechtolt has been a promiscuous genre-smasher since his adolescence, when he decided that playing drums in the touring punk band he formed with his older brother was more worthwhile than attending a single day of high school. He's plied his unique breed of beat-heavy laptop wizardry and grunge ethos to endless collaborations, both as producer and drummer, with west coast mainstays like Devendra Banhart, The Blow, Little Wings, and Bobby Birdman. He's also been recognized by such bigwigs as David Byrne, who name-dropped Bechtolt's production on The Blow's Paper Television in his Artforum Top 10 list, Paris' Centre Georges Pompidou, where he was commissioned for a large-scale performance, and Vibe Magazine, who touted Bechtolt as 'indie rock's Timbaland' in their review of YACHT's I Believe In You. Your Magic Is Real. (2007, Marriage Records)

Evans, whose vocals have been featured on previous YACHT recordings, joined the band full-time in 2008. She's a science writer and artist and who came to music through the underground Los Angeles noise scene. She writes a popular blog called Universe, about the intersection of art and science, for the ScienceBlogs network. She has presented her earnestly cosmic PowerPoint performances at MoMA PS1, The Kitchen, and the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, spoken at the Rubin Museum of Art about extraterrestrial life, written a collaborative book on art and science at Carnegie Mellon University, made commissioned films for the World Science Festival and SEED Magazine, and has collaborated with Bechtolt on literally hundreds of projects since they met in 2004.
NO - (Set time: 10:35 PM)
After a spate of personal misadventures in 2010, NO was born through
the chance encounter of Bradley Hanan Carter and Sean Daniel Stentz
at a local LA diner. Bonding over stories of disastrous relationships as
well as their mutual admiration for storytelling artists like Leonard
Cohen, Bill Callahan, Johnny Cash and Lou Reed, the two decided to
unite and build something for themselves.
Native New Zealander Carter states, We wanted something to believe
in. It sounds kind of dramatic, but there was really nothing to wake up
for at the time. This came at a stage when he found himself divorced,
bankrupt and experiencing a new kind of alone after deciding to walk
away from the lifelong religious beliefs of many friends and family
back home. I think for some of us, we’ve been so worried about where
we'll go when we die, that we've never really thought about where we
should go while we're still alive.
Fast forward a few months, add in more like-minded band members
and NO was on the way to being fully formed.
In July 2011 they recorded the debut EP Don’t Worry, You'll Be Here
Forever and released it via their website on 11.11.11. We were trying
to create something for ourselves that was positive and honest,
explains Stentz.
After the release of the EP, NO quickly gained recognition with the
local Echo Park crowds, and both NME and the LA Times tipped them
as an act to keep a close eye on. 2012 saw them wrack up over 100 live
shows, including supports for Best Coast and Electric Guest, and a
European tour with Father John Misty. In 2013 the band returned to LA
for a sold-out headline show at The Troubadour and performed at
international festivals including London’s Hard Rock Calling and
Germany’s Southside and Hurricane, as well as supporting the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Public Image LTD and The Naked and
The six piece are now looking forward. Newly signed to tastemaker
record label Arts & Crafts, NO have just finished their self-produced
debut album El Prado. Mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Foster
The People, Jake Bugg) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Beach House,
Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend), the album will see a North American
release on February 18, 2014.
NO is Bradley Hanan Carter (Vocals), Sean Daniel Stentz (bass), Reese
Richardson (guitar), Ryan Lallier (guitar/keys), Simon Oscroft (guitar)
and Michael Walker (drums).

James Supercave - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
James Supercave
Los Angeles-based alternative trio James Supercave are on the heels of releasing “Fools,” the third single from their forthcoming EP which marks the first collection of songs released from the psych-pop group since 2016’s Better Strange LP that carried a subsequent weight of the record label they were signed to folding.

Admiringly, James Supercave (Joaquin Pastor, Patrick Logothetti and Andrés Villalobos) are fueled with internal resilience as they continue to charge forward in their creative sphere, independently releasing these three new singles--“Something To Lose,” “Come Alone,” and “Fools.” The trio has pulled themselves out of additional hurdles after their record label folded; management and agent changes being two of those major obstacles. Industry drama aside, they’re still turning heads with their music. Andrea Domanick of Vice’s Noisey said, “‘Come Alone’ beckons you into another strange trip, with slinking, patient rhythms buoying uncanny quicksilver vocals.” Buzzbands LA’s Kevin Bronson pointed out that “James Supercave combine pysch-pop aesthetics with a pop sensibility to create an artsy hybridized sound much like Alt-J or MGMT.”

Their debut album, Better Strange, earned multiple “Best Album” awards and led to the band achieving sold-out shows on both coasts and securing opening slots for some of the nation’s biggest artists. From their onset, James Supercave have earned the respect and admiration of music fans and critics across the country. In 2014 they released their first single, “Burn,” which instantly claimed “Track of the Day” from L.A. tastemaker KCRW and set them on a rapidly-ascending trajectory. The following year their debut EP, The Afternoon, sparked great praise and opened the door for James Supercave to play major festivals and tour across the west coast.

In 2016, James Supercave followed their EP with their debut full-length album, Better Strange. They then hit the road on a national tour, followed by headline slots at local festival staples, and a sold out co-headline west coast tour wrapping up 2017. Supercave released their new single, “Something To Lose” on April 27th, 2018. Claiming #1 on KROQ Locals Only, three consecutive weeks in the ‘Top 10’ on Alt-Specialty Radio, two Sold Out hometown shows, and packed headline shows across California. In Supercave fashion, the band built upon their LA fanbase by headlining the Echo Park Rising festival, packing their stage beyond capacity then hopping to New York City to play three consecutive shows. Supercave then released their next single, “Come Alone”, which debuted at #3 on the Alt-Specialty charts and opened the door for Regular Rotation Adds on Alternative FM Radio, and a headline tour across the West Coast. Now James Supercave are releasing their third and final single, “Fools” 10/26, before their EP slated for January 2019.
