YACHTat South Street Seaport, August 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Yacht

YACHT will take part in an interesting event on August 31st at Body Actualized Center (143 Troutman in Bushwick):

Falling Into the Sun is an evening of heliocentric film, yoga, and experience.

Curated by Claire L. Evans, science writer and one-half of the conceptual pop group YACHT, Falling into the Sun is an aesthetic and corporeal experience pairing experimental films tracing the arc of the sun and its light across the Earth with a course of yogic sun salutations in order to fully immerse participants in the sensation of being pulled to the center of our solar system.

Come prepared to move ecstatically and celebrate the end of our hemisphere's summer!

Claire Evans of Yacht commented on the event:
"I've curated an experiential heliocentric film screening to which YACHT will play a live score. If you bring your body and mind in equal measure we'll do sun salutations to experimental visions of the sun's light as it traces across the sky. There will also be healing, meditation, cosmic DJs, projection mapping, installations, and a late-night afterparty that will follow the sun into the morning. Let's get weird!"
Full details on the event which also includes performances from Bobby Birdman, Seabat, DJ Jan Woo, DJ Jay Simon, and Bookworms are below, and you can pick up your tickets now (as of today) and only in person at Body Actualized Center. The show is the day after YACHT's appearance at the Beekman Beer Garden (8/30, tickets).

All tour dates and details on the "Falling Into The Sun" event are below.

"Claire L. Evans is a Los Angeles-based artist and writer. Claire is, of course, engaged in a number of fields. Her most famous work is in the highly stylized and conceptualized “band, belief system and business” YACHT (which she leads with Jona Bechtolt)"

I hate myself for saying this but GAG ME WITH A SPOON

why do we have to pretend theyre separate entities why cant it just be called CONVERSE BOWERY PRESENTS, like how some rim jobs are just rim jobs but others are VANS RIM JOBS

The entire crowd is being instructed to do the "downward dog" position for the entire show.

2:54- as this isn't rock, I wouldn't make that proclamation just yet.

This’s a really awesome article. I would like to appreciate your work, Thanks for sharing!

Rock is dead? I don't think so, if Stones are alive, Rock's alive too. Just my 2 cents...
