That's the crazy guy who writes the shitty songs that assholes enjoy ironically, right?

Daniel Johnston was enjoyable 19 years ago when he had some talent, now he's just some running joke who doesn't even understand why people actually like him, its like the elephant man except he doesn't have a life threatening disease. When he's on stage he's just overwhelmed and uncomfortable, where's the genius in that? Get over it people and let him live in his shed and draw.

Daniel Johnston isn't a particularly good performer or musician, but most contemporary should study the skill of his lyrics. He is one of the best at that. And he's got soul.

From the recent live footage I've seen it doesn't seem like he has much left in the tank, but seriously, it's a chance to see a legend.

I prefer my bat-shit crazy mutants to have at least some level of self-awareness. I'm going to see Magnetic Fields that night.

Great, the anti-semitic man-child is back.

Not a lot of people have suffered from as much genuine mental illness as Dan has, and it's a miracle he can and will still perform after recent health problems. Go if you can because you won't have this chance forever...

I'm going for the hell of it.
