Bumbershoot '14: Why Are We So Crazy for Mac Demarco?

Seattle Weekly staffers have a collective crush.

As we began to map out this year’s Bumbershoot coverage, one act kept coming up: Mac Demarco, a Canadian songwriter who’s been on the scene only a scant two years (though scoring an 8.5 on Pitchfork for this year’s excellent Salad Days and maintaining a ubiquitous presence on the festival circuit really helps to light a fire and inspire the ensuing torch-bearing). Whether it’s his boy-next-door mystique or his series of lo-fi slacker anthems, SW pundits pour on the love. Geez, get a room, guys.

Mac DeMarco Fountain Lawn Stage, Sat., 5:15 p.m.


Bumbershoot takes place Aug. 30–Sept. 1 at Seattle Center. $62 for single day pass, $175 for 3-day pass. Pick up Seattle Weekly’s print edition for a full schedule and map. Or go to bumbershoot.org for more information. And be sure to check out all our suggestions for music, film, and visual arts.
