About Yak Attack:
Yak Attack will make you dance. Founded in Portland, OR in 2013, this live electronica trio has been making waves in the scene and expanding its fan base quickly in its short history. Rowan Cobb (bass), Dave Dernovsek (keys) and Nick Werth (drums) combine skilled playing with live looping and effects, resulting in expansive sonic terrain and heightened peaks well beyond the capabilities of most live trios. Elements from genres including house, breakbeat, downtempo, jazz, and funk, tight compositions mixed with improvisation and jamming, and frequent contributions from guest musicians define a typical Yak show. The band has just released its first full-length album, “Real World Conditions”, and will soon be bringing its unique mix of live chops, electronic techniques, and monkey noises to a venue near you.
