Yacht brings Straight Gaze to Chicago

Yacht’s Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans tell us on their Web site that just because they added three members (referred to as the Straight Gaze), they are not a band:

“We do not want, or intend, to become more palatable or ‘rock and roll’ as a result of this change. The Straight Gaze are a psychic extension of us and Yacht will always be fucked-up, transcendent and weird. We hope that’s OK with you.”

And the non-band’s name? “Yes, we are aware that it sounds like ‘Straight Gays.’ This is intentional.”

For the past two years, Yacht has been a two-person act and before that Bechtolt performed alone. The bigger Yacht performs tonight at Empty Bottle.
