Mac Demarco to headline Culture Shock

WIUX is proud to announce that Mac Demarco will headline their annual spring music festival, Culture Shock.

Culture Shock will be Sat. April 12 at Dunn Meadow.

Demarco, who self-described his music as “jizz jazz” plays a dreamy and funky style of pop. His most recent album, 2, was released in 2012, earning “Best New Music” by Pitchfork. In January, Demarco announced that he was recording a second album, Salad Days, and is rumored to be recording with Tyler, the Creator.

Salad Days is scheduled to be released April 1, 11 days before Demarco takes the stage at Dunn Meadow.

WIUX has traditionally featured up-and-coming artists at Culture Shock. Last year, Mikal Cronin headlined the free concert. Other past artists include Spoon, Best Coast and Yo La Tengo.

Culture Shock also serves to showcase local bands from Bloomington. Triptides, Charlie Patton’s War and The Broderick have all performed at the festival.
