Everyone who was in attendance at the Bowery Ballroom on Monday night is probably going to die of some horrible strain of flu, and Mac DeMarco is Patient Zero. At least, that’s how it looked from the packed floor of his first of four sold-out New York shows in support of his latest EP, Another One. The scabby, gap-toothed troubadour has been known to instigate a little good-natured debauchery, but this time, he wasn’t swallowing NyQuil for fun; DeMarco looked truly and terrifyingly ill, apologizing before the set and swearing that he’d try to rally.

Rally he did, but the show got off to a bit of a rocky start, with guitarist Andy White breaking a string before it even began. Bassist Pierce McGarry did his part to get the crowd amped with an impromptu ditty dedicated to fast-food roast beef retailer Arby’s (the only lyric to the song was the word “Yummy,” melodically repeated over and over). Even with DeMarco under the weather, McGarry and White kept the banter flowing. – [The Village Voice]

Mac DeMarco is now halfway through his sold-out, four-show NYC run. Things got off to a rocky start on Monday (8/17) at Bowery Ballroom as Mac was battling a cold (the Voice review above is for that show), but he was in better spirits last night (8/18) for his show at Webster Hall with PC Worship and Tall Juan, ending, as he often does, on top of a sea of fans. His Webster set included selections from his own records (like the just released Another One), plus covers of Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ in the Years” and an encore of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” Pics from the whole evening and Mac’s setlist are in this post.

Tonight (8/19) DeMarco plays Music Hall of Williamsburg with Jerry Paper, and UK band Happyness opening. (Again, sold out.) There’s a free after-party happening at Baby’s All Right featuring a live performance from Stones Throw artist Silk Rhodes, plus members of the band DJing and other TBA shenanigans. Who knows what might happen. The party starts at 10 PM but won’t really kick into high gear till midnight or so.
