Last Wednesday, jizz jazzer [Ed. Note: That is a self-appellation coined by Mr. DeMarco himself] Mac DeMarco held a barbecue
to preview instrumentals off his new instrumental album, Some Other Ones
, soak up some cosmic rays, and #makeyouafuckinghotdog in exchange for a homeless donation.
Though I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, the actual BBQ turned out to be an incredibly generous gesture by Mac. With an attendance of about 500 people, the homeless donations were pouring in as Some Other Ones
played over his #carstereofucker. All in all, Mac's a class act, no matter how bizarrely he may portray himself. Through selfless actions like this impromptu BBQ, he establishes a connection between he and his fans, while showing sincere care for those less fortunate.
Mac was also selling Ass Passes that included a limited edition t-shirt, four tickets to his string of shows in New York next month, among other merch items. He's got four dates lined up for NYC, listed below. Here's a cut off Another One
08-17 New York, NY - Bowery Ballroom
08-18 New York, NY - Webster Hall
08-19 Brooklyn, NY - Music Hall of Williamsburg
08-20 Brooklyn, NY - Warsaw
