Mac Miller’s Swimming Tour with Thundercat & J.I.D begins on October 27th, until then you can feast your eyes on what you could be missing. The following live performance “Hurt Feelings” was recorded at The Hotel Café in Hollywood where he showcased his latest album to a smattering grown folks seated at tables. The tour itself promises to be less intimate, and regrettably so, because as you’ll come to see: Swimming is best served in a relaxed atmosphere slightly more kinetic than a poetry reading, but less boisterous than a college campus setting. Quite fittingly, The Hotel Café fancies itself a “cozy spot (that) boasts a full bar & small bites,” perfectly suited for singer-songwriter types on the brink going pop.
Mac Miller’s rendition “Hurt Feelings” sees him complete his overhaul with a complete rhythm section musicians, even the drummer has a wind chimes set up on the left hand side. By virtue his choosing J.I.D and Thundercat to accompanying, it’ would appear unlikely Mac Miller will have live musicians on hand come October, there simply isn’t enough time or $ to make those consolidations. Those who were lucky see his unplugged gig at The Hotel Café in August were likely being treated to a one-f experience.
