Earlier today, we heard the first two songs from Met Gala, a new band led by Mac DeMarco. In sharing those songs, DeMarco claimed that those songs were “recorded earlier today on the red carpet at the Met Gala,” despite there being no photographic evidence of DeMarco being anywhere near that red carpet. And as it turns out, he was on a whole other coast, so unless DeMarco can mystically be in two places at once, we can put that story to bed.
Contrary to his story, Pitchfork reports that DeMarco was in Los Angeles, performing with a truly strange assortment of people at the Largo nightclub. Neil Finn, of Split Enz and Crowded House (and, soon, Fleetwood Mac), and his songer/songwriter son Liam played a show at Largo last night. DeMarco was a part of that band, as were Natalie Mering, better known to most of us as Weyes Blood, and the Australian reprobates Kirin J Callinan and Connan Mockasin. And then Mike Myers showed up.
As Pitchfork points out, Myers joined DeMarco and the others to perform “BBC,” a song from the original Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery. He did not wear the wig or the glasses or the fake teeth. He did do the accent. Check the televisual evidence below.
IMDB says that there is another Austin Powers movie rumored to be in the works, if you can even believe that shit.
