Yacht

(CLL) PHN-LCKN 09

Some time has passed since the original experiment and cell phones are more dangerous than initially anticipated. We invite you to test a new solution to protect from SMC at (CLL) PHN-LCKN '09 in Tribeca. This time you get to keep your phone, enjoy complimentary beverages and jam out to tunes by a top secret dance party engineer.

Bring your phone. And no, there are no points for style.

Please select the appropriate ticket based on your height and weight to participate in this experiment to protect against SMC.

Admission includes a full-body protective device, open bar provided by Dewar's and Sapporo, entertainment engineered by our friends over at 5th Finger and a secret performance by someone that will make your friends jealous.

This is a private event and you must be 21+ to enter.

(CLL) PHN LCKN 06

In 2006, we told the world about Severe Micro-Cellulotamination (SMC), a disease which effects cell phone users, and conducted a cellular deprivation experiment to stop the spread of SMC at MoMA. In short, it failed, but that had no effect on the open bar or Les Savvy Fav's art smashing performance.

This event is TONIGHT (Monday, January 26th, in Tribeca (NYC). Yacht is also touring with Chairlift in March and April. More previously-unpublished photos from Yacht's 2008 performance at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, below...

"has to be daft punk"

well yes, except that it's Yacht.

no offense to Yacht, but the organizers of the event are obviously a little out of touch if they are advertising them as "a secret performance by someone that will make your friends jealous".

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 12:03 PM

some corporate event organiser doesn't know what year this is

if yacht even had a moment, it was at least 3 years ago

you can't teach an old ipod new tricks, jona!

At least there is an idea behind this event, rather then just a bunch of drunk hipsters hanging out in the same boring rooms + the price for this is open bar for 4 hours - myopenbar.com has 1 hour bulls#$% open bars to attract out of work losers who then get nailed with drink prices starting at 10 pm. I'm goin to get drunk. Yacht rules.

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 12:13 PM

yes, truth be told, there are a couple of "ideas" behind this event:

1.) alcohol company branding

2.) an experiment in whether losers will spend $30 on an act they shouldn't spend $5 on, if there's a half-assed gimmick invovled

what out of touch booker would hire Yacht in 2009?

passe as fuck, dude!

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 12:53 PM

craziest thing is they're undoubtedly spending a lot of cash for the priviledge of getting Yacht to play this stinking pile of shit.

sometimes you just want to see the genesis of how these terrible cluess debacles come together.

what fool with money hired the fool with the bad taste and bad event ideas, who then hired the shitty ipod performer?

I'm sure the back story is hilarious!

Yacht diddddd recently sign to DFA

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:18 PM

is it 2003 again?

because otherwise, who cares about yacht or DFA

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:19 PM

I'm not going to argue for or against the promoters, but thinking that Yacht is 2003 is also out of touch. 2009 and 2010 will be the year most people find out about Yacht.

1:26.

seriously? you have got to be the biggest bullshit artist of all time if you want anyone to actually swallow that one

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:28 PM

We realize YACHT sucks. Really, we do. But there's going to be weird spacesuits, and some of us can afford the cost of 4 drinks to party in weird spacesuits on a Monday night.

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:33 PM

I can totally afford this show, but I just wouldn't want to be there.

I especially wouldn't want to be there if 1:33 and his buddies are going solely because they can afford to. Sounds like the company of a bunch of rich bratty losers.

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:37 PM

Sounds to me like there is one person with a grudge against Yacht that will say anything to put him down.

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:44 PM

sounds to me like this event is going to suck and the organisers are bummed because it's getting shit talked on the internet and noone's going to come

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 1:49 PM

This site is so full of out of work haters its ridiculous. My guess is that every Anonymous post on here is the same loser just talking back and forth to himself. Ha.

Posted by Matthew | January 26, 2009 1:52 PM

my guess is there are about 5 people responsible for all these posts.

2 or 3 people who think this event is HILARIOUS and should be shit talked to death (I'm one of them)

the other 2 or 3 are the people who organised the show and either Jona or his "people," and they are bummed out

hi, my name's Matthew. I'm definately not Anonymous because I bothered to type in a name with no link and no email address, but I'm not posting anonymously, really I'm not. There's a big big difference!

Posted by Matthew | January 26, 2009 2:00 PM

I went this event with Les Savy Fav at MoMA last year.

Les Savy Fav was great, ever greater than usual.

The Dewars pours were very generous.

It was well worth it ($18 I think?).

I saw at least a few minutes of Yacht at Fun Fun Fun Fest.

The Fosters oil cans were well worth it.

I don't need a $10 space suit.

I think I'll skip this one.

I wonder how much longer it will take for you guys to figure out that the musical guest is not the primary focus of this event. (The clock is ticking.)

Posted by Anonymous | January 26, 2009 3:29 PM

3:29 is really hoping he doesn't lose all the money he put on the line putting this together

Wow... this is so mean spirited and rude.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2009 1:48 AM

did anybody go to this?

would love a report, though the opinion of someone who was willing to spend $30 to wear a plastic coat and watch crappy ipod music maybe can't be taken seriously...

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2009 10:49 AM

Yacht was not the draw of this event. They weren't even announced until like five days beforehand. People came for the cell phone thing. It was a blast. $30 was too much I agree, but still. If you are just going to talk shit on the internet all day you must not be working. Get a job.

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2009 4:06 PM

wait, there was a draw to this evet?

an "experiment" in suck

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2009 8:19 AM

hey 4:06. personally, I don't gotta work because I made my own way and wrote my own ticket.

$30 woulda been zero problem for me, but I'm not a tone deaf yuppie tool like you clearly are - so no appeal in this event for me.

suck on that bitch!
