In what is being touted as his final tour, singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston returns to the stage with an evening of performances of one of any number of 121 songs chosen from his repertoire. The guests — Ben Lee, members of Silversun Pickups, Maria Taylor, Mike Watt and the ever-tantalizing “more” — will pay homage as they play alongside him; a screening of the 2006 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston precedes the music. If you’re looking for some kind of mental meltdown, you’re barking up the wrong tree. This is simply your chance to bid farewell to a creator of a unique, unexpectedly influential kind of Americana. The totality of Johnston’s art and music deals with themes of connection, love and concern. It is not for nothing, after all, that his lifelong credo has been, “Hi, how are you?”
