We at TIG are beyond giddy for this Friday’s super exciting Daniel Johnston performance at Neumos. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Daniel Johnston is musical genius. You owe it to yourself to watch the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston… and I wouldn’t be surprised if you rushed the box office at Neumos Friday night to get in and see him play.
Kurt Cobain loved him, Converse is in collaboration with him on a snazzy new shoe design (purportedly anyway) and everyone from Clem Snide to Bright Eyes have covered him. Daniel Johnston is a serious talent, a strange bird that doesn’t fly around often and just an all-around fascinating human being.
Do yourself a favor and feed your musical soul at Neumos Friday night. The Dead Science and Kimya Dawson open for Daniel Johnston, and it’s an all-ages show this time kiddos!
