Mac DeMarco has launched his own fan club which will be run by his mother, Agnes.
The Mac DeMarco Fan Club is a community for fans featuring newsletters, meet-and-greets, contests, and more. DeMarco’s manager Michelle Cable will run the fan club alongside his mother.
The Fan Club is free to join though there is an option of paying an annual fee to become ‘Disciples’. These paying members will receive gifts including a fan club ring, pre-sale opportunities, presents from DeMarco, a zine, and a birthday message from Agnes DeMarco.
This is the latest fun stunt launched by DeMarco in 2015, the same year he released new album ‘Another One’. In June heencouraged fans to cover one of his songs, offering 44p for the best entries.
He also shared his home address on the end of new song ‘My House by the Water’. The instrumental track from ‘Another One’ ends with an invitation to DeMarco’s home in Arverne, a neighbourhood of Queens in New York. He says on the song: “Stop on by, I’ll make you a cup of coffee. See you later”.
DeMarco revealed that “about 30 kids” have taken him up on the offer so far.
However, these stunts did not appeal to everyone. Fat White Family threatened to “Join ISIS” if he continued to release music.
