MAC DEMARCO AND THE GARDEN

ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever

MAC DEMARCO!

What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:

The Garden 8:00

Mac Demarco 8:50

Flamming Lips 10:40

And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.

Album Review: Mac Demarco This Old Dog

I have been waiting for this album for a very very long time. And at last it finally came out on May 5, the day before I went to see Chance The Rapper. Mac Demarco is coming clean in this brand new side of himself in the album This Old Dog. In this album we a given a collective storyline of emotions through all the tracks. From the first song My Old Man to the last in Watching Him Fade Way. I had very very high expectations for his new release since I have saturated myself in the depths of Demarcos past albums.

There is something very special about this album, it shows growth and past reflections of new and old emotions and comtemplations. This is truly a master piece of an album. This however is not a mini album review, that will come in its own time. In this song Still Beating, from what I understand from the lyrics this song is Mac himself apologizing for his past actions of interest and silliness to others than his own lover, or girlfriend Kiki. I love this song and has now become a new favorite for me in my Mac Demarco collections. Honestly all his songs share a special place in my heart. He has got to be the only artist besides Björk, where I have listen and gave a chance to every single song he sings. I love this guy and his music.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
