Earlier this month, KEXP returned to the magical space of the Bunny Glade during Pickathon 2014 to capture intimate acoustic sessions in this wooded oasis. Each of the 17 exclusive performances were special, but we couldn't have asked for a better way to end our final day than with the charming slacker-pop of Mac DeMarco. Though Mac had originally intended to perform just three delightfully crooning numbers from his excellent 2014 album, Salad Days, he couldn't help but offer the crowd that had gathered to watch this unannounced impromptu performance in the woods one more song. Watch Mac has he's cooking up some irreverently fun good times in this session, recorded live at Pickathon, and then tune in to KEXP on Saturday, August 30, at 2:30PM, to hear him perform live from the Bumbershoot Music Lounge.
