The event took place on Tuesday and was organised by Nightfall Records, a local label. “Mac deserves to be sent off with an evening of celebrating his life, discussing his struggles, and remembering his stories; most importantly for his iconic work that brought joy into the lives of everybody who listened,” the label said.
