Flyer of the Week: Yacht at Electric Pickle November 14

​According to the Yacht Manifesto #1: "Yacht is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans of Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA." Also, Yacht "seeks to explore frontiers and to expand awareness of extraterrestrial Intelligence" and "believes in an Afterlife," but "does not believe in 'Heaven' or 'Hell.'" Moreover, the manifesto screams: "YACHT IS NOT A CULT."

Hmm ... Now, I don't know about you, but when somebody reassures me that whatever weird shit they're into isn't a cult, it's usually time to assume that the aforementioned weird shit is indeed a cult. And that goes double when the statement is made in italicized capital letters. It's the typographic equivalent of crazy eyes.

Really though, who cares? Cult or not a cult, so long as Yacht keeps pounding out art-pop party hits -- such as "See A Penny (Pick It Up)" -- and giving them out for free at, this thing seems to be all about good tunes and good times. That said, if there's so much as a single mention of castration, carving swastikas into human flesh, or Kool-Aid, I am so fucking gone.

Saturday, November 14. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors open at 10 p.m., and tickets cost $10 through Ages 21+ with ID. 305-456-5613; Electric Pickle at
