Mac DeMarco has given fans a few new gifts for the Hanukkah midpoint. First is a new string of US tour dates scheduled for next spring. The bicoastal trek starts on the East Coast before skipping west, ending up in the middle with a gig at Ohio’s Nelsonville Music Festival.
In addition, the slacker rock star has launched an official fan club with the help of his manager, Michelle Cable, and his dear mom, Agnes DeMarco. Offering newsletters, meet-and-great opportunities, exclusive videos and contests, the club has both free and paid levels. For $50 a year ($75 USD in Canada, $85 anywhere else), you can become a Disciple. Perks for the annual subscribers include a fan club ring and gift package, special pre-sales, exclusive tunes, and even a “holiday surprise” from DeMarco and personalized birthday messages from dear Agnes. There’s also a yearly zine that will be sent right to your doorstep.For more on the DeMarco fan club or to become a Disciple yourself, check out the official website.
