The raised viewing area in Nambucca is packed and an excited chatter fills the air. The 300 tickets for the show were snapped up in seconds, this, a solo precursor to his two-night stint at Brixton Academy in May promoting new album ‘This Old Dog’.

Mac DeMarco’s no frills approach sees him and his trusty Fender take to the stage without any fanfare. A mic stand is all he needs tonight and in jovial spirits he constantly banters with the audience, as friends do, over a drink or tonight in Mac’s case, a bottle of tequila and beers “playing drunk is great” he laughs. The Canadian born 26 year-old is everyone’s mate and delivers his alternative stripped back brand of easy to absorb chilled out folk-pop with a heartwarming confidence.

‘Ode to Viceroy’, ‘Blue Boy’ and the nights closer ‘Still Together’ were my personal highlights but the set itself was one long highlight. A stage invasion saw half the venue join Mac for ‘My Kind of Woman’ with the bouncers needed before they relinquished the platform for one final sing-a-long. A standalone performance from an endearing artist clearly having the time of his life and long may it continue.

This Old Dog is out on May 5th.
