WVAU and SUB to bring Mac DeMarco, Shark Week to AU

WVAU and SUB to bring Mac DeMarco, Shark Week to AU

Mac DeMarco and Shark week will perform on campus on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m.

The concert, hosted by WVAU co-sponsored by the Student Union Board, will be held in the School of International Service Founders Room. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are free with a valid AU student ID at the door.

This event will mark the first collaboration between the two organizations.

“In our collaboration with SUB, WVAU is excited to reach a wider student audience and
bring one of our most-played artists to the AU community,” WVAU General
Manager Max Tani said in a press release.

Canadian born Mac DeMarco first appeared in 2012 with his debut record “Rock and Roll Night Club.” Nine months later, the then 21-year-old released his sophomore album “2.”

DeMarco has become famous for his indie-rock, laid back sound. His most well-known tracks range from hazy anthems like “Ode to Viceroy” to catchy guitar leads featured in “Coming Up Something Good.” Local D.C. surf-rock band Shark Week, who showcased in WVAU’s Capital Punishment series on Oct. 5, 2012, will open for DeMarco.

The show will be the first of two collaborations between WVAU and SUB, with another to be announced in the spring semester.
