Mac DeMarco, Torres, Naughty by Nature & more playing Libera Awards this week in NYC
This week in NYC is A2IM’s Indie Week, a music industry conference for Independent labels and service providers. It’s mostly panel discussions and workshops (such as “Reality 101 in the Land of Sync”) but Indie Week will culminate in the 5th Annual Libera Awards which happen Thursday, June 16 at Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom. We mentioned that Ted Leo is hosting those awards, and we’ve since learned the ceremony will feature some pretty cool performances too. Mac DeMarco, Naughty By Nature, Nosaj Thing, and Torres are all playing. Tickets, which range from $50 general admission to a $5000 table for 10 (three-course meal included), are on sale now. Having Mac play a back-patting industry awards show like this could prove…interesting.
