Daniel Johnston

10 years ago by Chris Gray
It's hard to believe Daniel Johnston is 50. He looks every bit of it, or he did at the ill-fated but enjoyable Ghoulsfest in October. The Daniel Johnston in his songs, though, remains the wide-eyed incurable romantic that first surfaced in mid-'80s Austin and is depicted in Infernal Bridegroom/Catastrophic Theater's...

Hi, How Is Daniel Johnston?

9 years ago by Chris Gray
Rocks Off is very proud to present Daniel Johnston's in-store performance 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Cactus Music. As always, it's absolutely free, including the St. Arnold's. Thinking about the in-store, we realized we hadn't heard much about Johnston lately, which is good in the "no news is good news" way,...

SXSW: Daniel Johnston at Emo's

12 years ago by Keith Plocek
So I generally don't know how to feel about Daniel Johnston. I think he's a songwriter whose simple chord progressions and simplistic lyrics meld together into absolute brilliance, no matter that his voice belongs squarely in the love-it-or-hate-it camp.

Daniel Johnston Holds a Living Room in Awe, Briefly

5 years ago by Jesse Sendejas Jr.
Daniel Johnston House Party Comedy June 18, 2016 After Daniel Johnston’s Saturday night set in Houston, I wondered whether Mozart was ever booed following a live performance. It’s odd to consider today that one of the classical masters was a working musician during his time. Like any artist, he was...

Remembering Daniel Johnston, Lo-Fi Guru of Do-It-Yourself Music, Dead at 58

2 years ago by David Ensminger
Though a transplant from West Virginia, and born in California, Daniel Johnston was synonymous with Austin’s unique and weird music ecosystem for years. Despite suffering from a sometimes debilitating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, he became a bona fide lo-fi guru of Do-It-Yourself music-making. On Wednesday, September 11, he died, likely...
