Last Friday I threw a send off party for one of my very good friends Rahul (who’s leaving to travel the world) at my house which also served as a dual purpose independence day party (as it started on the 4th of July and went well into the 5th). At the party I was prepared to play a little DJ mix for everyone to groove to some quality tunes and have some dancing fun times. Little did I know that this DJ mix would actually stretch into all hours of the night, clocking in at just under 8 hours. That’s right, it’s not a typo. This was and in all likelihood will be, the longest DJ set I’ve ever played in my life.
So apparently the tv network MTV that you know best from the VMAs, TRLs, Carson Dalys, Kurt Loders, music videos, and the variety of terrible reality shows (that I will not mention) still has one show that is funny, strange, amusing, and hip to the indie scene. Enter Weird Vibes (which is technically on MTV Hive, whatever that is). Out of all the Weird Vibes shows I’ve watched, Mac Demarco’s (episode 18) takes the cake. And the souffle too. After you take a bit of time (below) to familiarize yourself with Mac this should come as no surprise, as you’ll find that Demarco’s gregarious personality seems more than fit for the spotlight.
