In January 2004, a little music venue threw open its doors on an unassuming stretch of Fell Street in San Francisco's Hayes Valley. Over the past 10 years, a slew of amazing bands have graced its stage, from rock icons like Jonathan Richman and the Undertones to now-huge indie acts like M.I.A., Vampire Weekend, and Tune-Yards, to cutting edge electronic artists like Toro y Moi, Matthew Dear, and Neon Indian.

On January 7-12, Rickshaw Stop celebrates 10 years of kicking ass by throwing a mini-festival, featuring musical acts that have graced the stage at some point in the club's decade of service.
YACHT
YACHT
YACHT is a conceptual pop group based in Los Angeles, California. It's the brainchild of Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, whose wide-ranging interests and deep-seated ADD cause YACHT to frequently metamorphose: from band to belief system, from disco infiltrators to punk rockers, from performance artists to graphic designers, publishers, sculptors, or philosophers.

YACHT was born in 2002 in Portland, Oregon, as a solo cross-disciplinary experiment for Jona Bechtolt, using technology to extend physical boundaries of communication, performance, and music. In 2008, after a shared mystical experience in the Far West Texas desert, Bechtolt was joined in the YACHT endeavor by longtime collaborator Claire L. Evans. Spurred by this paranormal bond, this new incarnation of YACHT wrote and recorded the critically-acclaimed See Mystery Lights in Marfa, Texas. This album was followed in 2011 by Shangri-La, a genre-defying concept album about utopia, dystopia, and every place in between.

Currently, the Straight Gaze, Robert "Bobby Birdman" Kieswetter and Jeffrey "Jerusalem" Brodsky, round out the live YACHT band. YACHT's heart is in their live shows, which they call "Temporary Autonomous Zones:" uncluttered, anarchic, inspiring sessions of damaged dance moves and coded ritualism, backed by constantly changing elements—Power Point presentations, audience Q&A sessions, and shamanistic video environments.

YACHT has toured with LCD Soundsystem, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hot Chip, Architecture in Helsinki, Vampire Weekend, The Dirty Projectors, and Chairlift; YACHT is multidisciplinary enough to have been paired with the Chemical Brothers, the Breeders, and Phoenix; YACHT has played on boats, in caves, in bathrooms, in art galleries and museums, in rural China, and at the Hollywood Bowl; YACHT are prolific remixers, dismantling songs by Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Neon Indian, Stereolab, RATATAT, Classixx, and many more.
Shock
Shock
Shock is Terri Loewenthal, Dan Judd and Michael Taras. We make cosmic dance and emotional pop music. Vocals and space guitars surrounded with warm synth layers, deep bass, and electric rhythms encourage the crowd to dance. The gentle brush of a windchime signals the beginning of a journey from the pyramids to the ocean.
