Underground Arts hosted a packed crowd on Friday night with headlining act Mac DeMarco, who was touring behind his recently released second LP Salad Days. The laid-back, dreamy album caught the ears of many and it certainly showed as Underground Arts was as crowded as I’ve ever seen it. Mac Demarco has a swoonworthy and chill persona – baseball cap on his head and a cigarette in-between his fingers – and he performed a killer set of stoner love songs. With many longtime fans in the audience, folks sang along to the cuts like “Ode to Viceroy” and “Freaking Out in the Neighborhood” from his prior record 2. Opening act Laser Background used a megaphone and dreamy electric melodies to warm up the audience just right. And Juan Wauters had a stellar backdrop of various flags sewn together, incorporated with flickering light bulbs and Christmas lights throughout the entire set. Check out photos from the show in the gallery below.

Tonight’s Concert Picks: Veronica Falls at Johnny Brenda’s, Obits with Creepoid at Underground Arts, Aaron and the Spell at The Tin Angel

VeronicaSlumberland / Bella Union artists Veronica Falls hit Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  The London-based four piece are indie pop born and bred, having come together after three members (two from Sexy Kids and one from Your Twenties) met at a Comet Gain show.  Now touring in support of their second full-length Waiting for Something to Happen, Veronica Falls got their start releasing gothy / punk-pop singles on Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks label.  The current LP, however, is much brighter sounding than the early efforts with a Pale Saints-esque shoegaze quality.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Cold Showers and Juan Wauters can be found here.  Watch their video for “Teenage” off of Waiting below.
