UNIF hosted a listening party for Mac DeMarco’s newest album “This Old Dog,” which is set for release on Friday, May 5.
The listening party was conveniently set on DeMarco’s 27th birthday, giving fans all the more reason to come out for the function.
Attendees jammed to the newest album and received hot dogs in exchange for food bank donations.
Suggested donations included personal care items, clothing, and both canned and fresh food products.
Tyler the Creator, a rapper and infamous member of Odd Future, made an appearance at the event and was greeted by an entourage of excited fans. Many fans risked their spots in line at the opportunity for a photo and autograph, of which Tyler was, at times, reluctant to give.
The event went from 2 p.m. to a little past sundown.
UNIF and DeMarco gathered at least one large bin with food bank donations, consisting of mainly canned food items and personal hygiene products.
Some fans waited upwards of two hours in the SoCal heat for their chance to get a photo with DeMarco. Line length peaked around 3:30 p.m., but shortened from then on.
The hot dogs seemed infinite. As did the line.
The new album, “This Old Dog,” formally debuts this Friday, May 1, though it’s been rumored to have leaked online. (Wink.)
