As mentioned, the Captured Tracks 5th Anniversary festival (CT5) is coming up in two week at Brooklyn's The Well on August 31 and September 1 featuring DIIV, Mac Demarco, Wild Nothing, Blouse, Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, MINKS, Soft Moon, Soft Metals and more. Tickets are still available in various permutations: either as single day (8/31 here; 9/1 here), two-day passes or the ultra-two-day pass that comes with a goodie bag of exclusive stuff. For more on the fest, the label has just released a promo video starring Mac DeMarco and Dustin from Beach Fossils in unbridled form. That's a still from it above, and you can watch it below.

Captured Tracks is also throwing a contest through a few different local record stores where you can win a pair of tickets to the show as well as some special prizes, like "donuts/coffee with Mac DeMarco." List of participating stores (and the prizes) are below.

And don't forget that shoegazers Medicine, whose new album came out this week on Captured Tracks, play their first NYC show in eons tonight (8/16) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Weekend and Leverage Models. Tickets are still available.

Incredibly stupid promo...and not in a "so bad it was good" way.

In spite of the fact that this festival is 100 dollars for 12 bands, I bet the dude from DIIV will still bitch about how he lost thousands of dollars from playing this festival.

Thats one weird promo video. But, it fits in with the weirdness on BV lately.

6:08, Mac Demarco isn't rich at all. He worked cleaning up road kill in Canada. He probably makes some cash now, but is in no way rich.
