Yacht brings Straight Gaze to Chicago
“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.
