Red Bull Sound Select will feature Canadian indie-pop star Mac DeMarco, along with art-poppers Puro Instinct and Avid Dancer, hosted by Hands, Jan. 29 at L.A.'s The Echo.

The monthly showcase, which takes place in cities around the world, is curated by local luminaries. This month's show is presented in partnership with IAMSOUND.

The show is $3 with an RSVP here (Facebook doesn't count) and $12 without, at the door. There's no presale. The show is 21+ and doors are at 8 p.m.

Amoeba is curating the next L.A. Sound Select show in February. Check back at the Amoeblog to see details on that event soon!

The showcase aims to present emerging artists to the community in career-launching spots. All proceeds from the night go toward supporting the local artists who open the shows. Past artists in the series have included Diiv, Wavves, Yacht and local favorites like HOTT MT, Wildcat! Wildcat! and Incan Abraham.

Mac DeMarco today announced he has finished mixing his new album, which previously had been announced with the title Salad Days but which is called Eddies Dream in the description for the YouTube video below (this could be a goof, for all we know). It's due in April on Captured Tracks, and if there weren't enough reasons already to love DeMarco, he made the announcement by posting a bizarre nude dancing video to YouTube and Facebook.

"I know my label's gonna be really mad, but I just am so excited," he writes on Facebook. "I had to share the title track and brand new music video with you guys."

Watch the slightly NSFW video below.
