Since 2002, Jona Bechtolt has kept YACHT evolving, first as a man-vs.-laptop side project during his time away from the Blow and now as a full-blown electro dance party. Since joining a few years back, vocalist Claire L. Evans has worked in sweet congress alongside Bechtolt's already high timbre, and their partnership allows for some crucial call-and-response vocals. As the title suggests, last year's Shangri-La is long on uplifting utopian party jams, where one-finger synth lines meet metronomic drum beats and everyone makes twenty new best friends.

Synth Siblings: The keyboard-driven flair of local opener Née will provide an electro-pop apéritif for the show.
