Flier of the Week: Dry River Yacht Club at The Sail Inn

It's not everyday you see fliers for shows with over a dozen bands on them. And when you do, the 8 1/2 by 11-inch piece of paper is more likely to list the headliners and add "And others" instead of naming every single band.

So, you've got to hand it to Dry River Yacht Club, whose leaflet for their Saturday, April 3 CD release party at The Sail Inn features 14 local groups--and it's organized impressively clearly. Amid a pretty background of sunset and green fields, they even fit room in to tell you the show starts at 3 p.m. and costs $10--which includes a free CD by the Dry River Yacht Club.

As for what you can expect from this Saturday's festival, featuring longtime buddy bands What Laura Says and Black Carl, cello player Steve Bohn says, "Peeps are ready to hear something they've never heard before. We all want to dance and cry in the same heartbeat. Our music expresses a dramatically sublime vision of a world we all want to know."

The group always seems to be busy playing shows locally, but next month tell your friends in Colorado to check them out when they play up north April 30 and May 1.

Adds Dry River Yacht Club vocalist/accordion player Garnet (who goes by one name), "Come for hula hoops, flowers, free champagne and good music." Sounds good. For more info, log on to www.myspace.com/dryriveryachtclub.
