Published Dec 09, 2015Although Mac DeMarco projects a slacker image, he's actually an exceptionally hard worker known for his prolific output and steady touring schedule. Come 2016, he'll continue to travel and play shows, as he has just announced a spring run in North America.
After ending 2015 (and starting 2016) in Australia and New Zealand, DeMarco will hit the road in his home continent in May. After a couple of gigs in the eastern part of the U.S., he'll hop over to the West Coast for a leg of shows that includes a Canadian stop in Vancouver on May 27 at its famed forest venue the Malkin Bowl.
See the schedule below. These dates are in support of last year's mini-album Another One.
In related news, DeMarco has just unveiled a new website. What's more, he's also launched an official Mac DeMarco Fan Club, which he will run himself along with his mother Agnes and manager Michelle Cable.
There's a free Fan Membership and a paid Disciple Membership; according to a description, the paid membership "comes with some very special gifts including a fan club ring, newsletter and other perks." Scroll past the dates below to watch a weirdo trailer for the fan club.
Also below, hear DeMarco's guest appearance on Blouse member Charlie Hilton's tunefully sedate "100 Million." He plays guitar and sings backup harmonies. Hilton's album Palana will be out on January 22 through Captured Tracks.
