For the latest edition of Live Session by digital outlet Sounds From The Corner, they presented an internationally known singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Canada known as Mac DeMarco. The Canadian singer was here in Jakarta, Indonesia on January 22nd 2015 for his first ever live concert.

Mac DeMarco itself is band with the genre jizz-jazz which is a self made genre.

The first song that was sung by Mac DeMarco is “Salad Days”. For those of you who do not know, this song is a hit single from the same titled album, which was released in 2014. The band stage act were very exciting and also ridiculous which somehow also attract the local audience. Along with those, the vocalist often throws his dirty jokes and slob sentences who invites laughter among the crowd. There is also in another time, all the spectators screamed and asked for the selfie when Mac tries to jump into the crowd just before he played their last song. We could say that Mac Demarco’s stage action can be considered very successful, and the enthusiasm that built upon the audience able to make the Canadian band did an encore by simply played “Enter Sandman” by Metallica. It was definitely hell of a concert! This is Mac Demarco first visit to Indonesia, and we are pretty sure that the event is very memorable for them and also the audience.
