You can't shine a pair of Vans. And you can't ask Mac DeMarco, even for his first "Austin City Limits" taping, not to drink directly from a bottle of stage-wine. 

"It's Cab-Sav. It's French," he told the crowd. 

The wine, a midshow handstand, stage decor that included more than one doll head -- all are tricks pulled from the large bag the "gap-toothed, goofy, slacker rock kid from Edomonton" hauls to his shows.

He’s known for shoving a cigarette between the gap and once shoving a drumstick somewhere else. The crowd, which is usually very young and which he always surfs, loves it. Every antic, but the grosser ones even more.

Even though Tuesday’s taping was at the same venue DeMarco used a lighter to burn some of his chest hair off on stage five months ago, he started the show notably determined to behave.

Feeling this stage set up. Queens represent! #farrockaway #macdemarco #acltv
