YACHT's 2011 release, Shangri La, pieces together a summer synth album perfect for poolside lounging, even if it's in contrast with their existential themes. The duo takes its acronym–Young Americans Challenging High Technology — seriously as they go about creating some of the most memorable electro-pop in the last year. The blips and bloops of Jona Bechtolt's innovative tracks give way to Claire L. Evans' impressive vocals, which are necessary for a dreamy collaboration. Tactics Productions brings the divine duo to Club Dada with support from Onuinu and Zhora, which means you need to shine your dancing shoes. It promises to be a heavenly night of pop music in Dallas.
