I didn’t expect nothing less from Mac DeMarco at The Anthem on Wednesday night — minus the possibility of him climbing the balconies like he did at the 9:30 Club (for obvious safety reasons he did not). He did mention that he had the flu, so possibly he didn’t have the energy to scale those balconies at The Anthem, but he did have lots of energy for banter with his band members and crowd. By the end of the night, I completely forgot that he was sick because he played exactly like  as if I was listening to him through my headphones at home.

There are few concerts more fun these days than a Bat Fangs show, as Betsy Wright and Laura King reminded us at Comet Ping Pong on Thursday. The ladies blasted into a rollicking set that produced a rather euphoric buoyancy throughout the audience, who packed the room to catch Bat Fangs on tour with The Love Language.

The Arctic Monkeys, as I’m told, now live in Los Angeles and not Sheffield, England, any longer. With that move comes an apparent transformation or maturation that began with an urbane sonic makeover in 2013’s AM.
