When: Mon., March 31, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $10 ADV, $12 DOS
It’d be pretty easy to hate singer Mac DeMarco. He’s made a name for himself convincing fans that the ultimate in uncool — Steely Dan, which he often cites as an influence — is actually really cool. He exudes the effortlessness charm of the high school slacker. Worst of all, he’s currently riding a wave of popularity with the current iterations of those same high school slackers, thanks in no small part to the fact that Pitchfork bestowed the “Best New Music” title upon his latest album. Though it’d be easy to miss underneath his smirk, DeMarco’s a gifted guitar player and a deft composer. On his new album Salad Days, he expands his range to include synths He’s not a shabby lyricist, either, and the song “Cookin’ Up Something Good” could be about domesticity or it could be the most incisive indictment of economic inequality in suburban rings since the post-financial crisis era.
