Daniel Johnston Live @ Rochester Opera House May 12th 2012

I recorded the whole show but I’m just putting up Daniel’s portion for now.

Daniel Johnston & Friends

Andrew, Ashley and I drove up to New Hampshire this weekend with tickets in hand to a benefit concert for Brett Hartenbach, a folk musician who had played with Daniel for some time before suffering a grand mal seizure and discovering he had a grade III anaplastic astrocytoma brain tumor. You can read more about him and the fund to help him raise money for his treatment here: http://thebrettfund.com/


Again just Daniel’s set for now (not for lack of quality or anything, the whole show was fantastic), which he played with band Wooden Eye and Brett as well. Check out the Brett fund and if you can, help out. Pick up the latest album of people covering his songs, all the profits go to help him out and it’s a good listen on top of that.

You can hear Andrew and I a few times during this recording. Andrews laugh is distinctively close and I yell out “Speeding Motorcycle” along with Daniel as he starts to sing it. The guy behind us is also all over the recording…sorry.

  1. Awesome, what a great concert, we got so much merch…

  2. Oh man, I had never hear The Sun Shines Down on Me before this, as the obnoxious dude behind us put it “This song breaks my heart Danny”
