Mac DeMarco returns to Manchester for a special show at Albert Hall. A dreamy yet lucid take on the best bits of a whole host on genres – psyche, grunge and even surf are all layered in there somewhere – DeMarco’s found  a  home with seminal indie label Captured Tracks. A singular talent, critics have lauded DeMarco’s work, while still struggling to unwrap his enigmatic and unique talent, referencing everyone from Malkmus to Jonathan Richmond. On record, Mac has earned a reputation as being both extremely accomplished and wildly experimental. These are both qualities that feature heavily in his live shows, with the addition of his unusual stage presence. This show is the first of two Now Wave shows as part of Beacons Metro series which sees the festival abandon it’s past in the Yorkshire Dales in favour of one-off events in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.  

Sat 12 Sep, Albert Hall, 22 Peter Street, Manchester M2 5QR. Tel: 0844 858 8521, 3pm-late, £22, tickets on sale Fri 12 Jun, 9am,
