Mac DeMarco is not unknown for the goofy and outright odd.
Showing a bit of heart, the singer lent his talents to a serious cause. Laying down some kitschy covers, DeMarco appeared at Panache Booking and New York Night Train’s annual Village of Love benefit concert to raise money for planned parenthood.
Among his own tracks, DeMarco delighted fans with an acoustic rendition of Billy Joel’s 1977 hit Just the Way You Are.
Mac’s cover of the golden classic wasn’t exactly seamless. There were more than a few fumbled lyrics, but the singer was quick to cover up any imperfections with his trade mark smile.
The performance was followed on by busting out a crowd-pleasing sing along of the Four Seasons’ chart-buster December 1963 (Oh, What A Night).
It’s not the first time the 70s staple has found it’s way into Demarco’s live set, but the singer certainly instilled the cover with a tongue in cheek twist given the subject matter of the benefit.
DeMarco closed the set with original Still Together, which concluded part way due to an impromptu stage dive.
The singer is currently working on a new track in collaboration with Ryan Paris, the vocalist behind 80s synth pop classic Dolce Vita.
