Daniel Johnston on Pancake Mountain



Whoa!
Today we shot legendary musician/artist Daniel Johnston (seen in pic with myself and show host Garnett Soles) as our special guest on DC based children's show Pancake Mountain. He was amazing, and performed two improv songs with opening act Benjy Ferree as his backing band. I can't even begin to describe how awesome it was (just watch the clip)..... This could probably be my favorite Pancake Mountain dance party shoot yet (closely followed by Arcade Fire, MIA, The Subways, and Bright Eyes)! If you don't know who Daniel is, please rush out and watch the incredible documentary, The Devil And Daniel Johnston (trailer). If you don't know what Pancake Mountain is, please rush out and watch the incredible documentary, The Devil And Daniel Johnston...

Somehow I managed to post this to the wrong post. Stupid internet.

I saw Daniel Johnston perform at MOCA (used to be decent but now real crappy gallery in Gtown) about 8 or 9 years ago. I had no idea who he was or what to expect and was pretty blown away when an unshaved fat guy in sweatpants and flannel got up to sing love songs about Captain America and Casper the Friendly Ghost.
