ANTI-FOLK | Billy Mack Collector 

Singer-songwriter Billy Mack Collector claims that he writes "happy songs about being uncomfortable," and his off-beat, anti-folk tunes certainly fit that description. Popular anti-folk artists such as Kimya Dawson, Regina Spektor, and Paul Baribeau led a rebellion against traditional folk music years ago, oftentimes accomplishing this feat by combining the genre with others (most notably punk), leading to an amalgamation of styles that felt entirely new. Like the aforementioned artists, Billy's music is self-effacing, unpretentious, and hard to define. Billy's songs are acoustic and bare, and often feel not quite put-together; this avoidance of perfection is both charming and welcoming.

Billy Mack Collector will perform with Hieronymus Bogs, Zekibird, Peter House, and The Fevertones on Friday, August 16, 7 p.m. at the Vineyard Community Space, 836 Clinton Ave. The show is free, with a $5 suggested donation.
