Happy birthday, YACHT! You are 10. Soon you will be going to middle school. Before you go and do that, though, you might as well have a birthday party. As is customary in your family, you will have your birthday party in Los Angeles at The Echoplex on December 8. Your party will feature material from all eras and lineups of YACHT, as well as special guests, party favors, prizes, and surprises. Or so I’m told.
Not only are you turning 10, YACHT, you can also celebrate the creation of your first comedy television program. I know, it’s hard to believe; it feels like just yesterday that you didn’t have a comedy television program. Your program is called Support and you have developed it as a web series for Amazon Studios. In fact, you didn’t just develop it, you’re also writing it. All four members of YACHT are writers on the show.
Support focuses on a band’s life on the road, giving some people the idea that maybe, just maybe, this show is loosely based on your experiences, YACHT. In fact, the members of YACHT gave the following statement about the show: “For the past three years, we’ve imagined our lives on the road as a TV show. In many ways, a tour is a perfect analogue to an episodic series: there’s a central cast of characters, recurring locations, absurd scenarios, and new conflicts to resolve every day.” Why did I just tell you what you yourself said, YACHT? Why am I telling you any of this?
