Last Saturday night, less than a day after his sold-out show at The Independent, we caught up with Mac DeMarco at The Warfield to partake in all things jazzy, strange and weird.
The 26-year-old king of slacker rock, who over the past few years has become a fan favorite of many Bay Area audiophiles, never seems to hold back when he comes to town. His first night in SF last week saw him jump from The Indy’s balcony into an awaiting crowd (a feat that was later imitated by a female audience member at The Warfield the next night), run around half naked while playing new songs and perform a 25-minute cover of Eric Clapton’s 1971 hit single “Layla” with fart solos sprinkled throughout.
Who said Canadians don’t know how to have fun, or that DeMarco got tame while on tour?
