Watch Mac DeMarco’s Band Cover Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Peppers at Lollapalooza

Drummer Joe McMurray sings "High and Dry" and "Under The Bridge"

Last week during his set at Lollapalooza, Mac DeMarco’s band took some time to play a couple songs from the classic rock handbook.

Hopping behind the kit, DeMarco traded places with drummer Joe McMurray to cover both Radiohead’s “High And Dry” as well as Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Under The Bridge”. According to McMurray, RHCP were somewhere in the crowd he mentioned in his opening words before “Under The Bridge”.

“I can’t really sing this song, but I love them very much.” McMurray said. “I respect them a lot and I’m gonna sing it anyways.”

With his off-pitch performance, it’s closer to karaoke than it is something you’d expect to hear at one of the world’s largest music festivals, but this is Mac DeMarco here; anything is possible.
