Phoebe Bridgers, Waxahatchee, Jeff Tweedy, Beck, Devendra Banhart, the Lemon Twigs, Cut Worms, and many others are performing tonight in Electric Lady Studios Presents, “Honey I Sure Miss You, A Tribute to the Life of Daniel Johnston.” Watch their sets, along with performances from Kevin Morby, Fontaine's DC, Maya Hawke & Jesse Harris, and more, below and at the Electric Lady Studios website.
In addition to presenting the tribute, New York’s Electric Lady Studios has curated a collection of Johnston’s original artwork, including his Symbolical Visions drawing. Electric Lady also showed a never-before-seen home video of Johnston during the tribute program.
Daniel Johnston died a year ago today of a heart attack. He was 58 years old. An outpouring of support and remembrance from the music community followed the news of his death. In July, a new box set comprising Johnston’s 1990 album 1990 and 1991’s Artistic Vice was announced.
