YACHT

When: Sun., Feb. 28, 8 p.m. 2016

Tinder? Segways marketed as hoverboards? Is this the best we can do? On YACHT’s sixth record, I Thought the Future Would Be Cooler, Claire Evans and Jona Bechtolt answer with a firm no. But this forward-thinking dance band does their best to bring us to the funk-utopia: to release their album last year, YACHT dropped a GPS coordinate to an LA billboard, where they hosted a Q&A and handed out risographed flyers of the record’s manifesto. Lyrically, the band’s digital pop skews between a Ted Talk and Sesame Street; it’s what you should play for your kids if you want them to grow up as cool nerds.

Price: $15
